Speaking at DevConnections – Vegas

This September, I will be speaking at IT/Dev Connections at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas.  The event goes from September 15th until the 19th.   I have two talks:

Application Lifecycle Management with Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server (Full-Day Workshop)
Through good Application Lifecycle Management practices, your team can turn an idea into delivered software. Team Foundation Server helps you manage this process and apply great software development practices along the way. This session will cover turning your idea into hierarchical user stories, release planning to provide the business with a forecast of when deliveries should be expected, Agile practices to break down the work into tasks, creating and running unit tests, using Visual Studio to not only build software but also build quality right into your software through the use of good unit testing and version control practices, build automation, load testing, release management, and analyzing your delivered code once it’s in production. This workshop will prepare you with real-world scenarios that you can apply the moment you’re back in the office.

Empower Your Cross-Platform Teams with Git and Team Foundation Server
Git is a powerful version control system that allows teams from different platforms to collaborate by having a single place to integrate their code. Team Foundation Server provides Application Lifecycle Management tools and functionality that enables collaboration and tracking from the moment a project is envisioned until it’s deployed. Now that Team Foundation Server hosts Git, teams across different technology stacks can have a single place where all collaboration can take place. This session will cover Git functionality from Visual Studio, Eclipse, and the command line, as well as build automation and common branching practices to help your teamwork succeed.

There’s a ton of great speakers and sessions and I’m very excited to be back at this event!  You can see all the developer sessions here.  There are multiple tracks: Development, Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server, and Windows.

    Could mirror them in a few steps:

    Create new VSTS/VSO repo
    Get path
    git remote add seconrepository alt-machine:/path/to/repo
    Git push -f secondrepository master

      Looks great! is this actually a solution to mirroring of GitHub and VSTS or a new question? I just didn’t try that since I am new to git and scared of making some irreversible changes to my code. Thanks.

    Thank you so much.. your articles are the best in solving issues .. they’re exactly what a user looks for and cannot find in official blogs or documentation.

    BTW, is there any way to have local repo connected to both GitHub and VSTS simultaneously?

      Hi Shahab,
      Yes, you can add multiple remotes: https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Basics-Working-with-Remotes
