Video: Sprint Planning with Visual Studio Online

This is part 4 of a video series that will help you learn how to get started and use Application Lifecycle Management tools.  The videos are meant to be short and to the point to quickly show you how to perform specific tasks.  Be sure to check back often for more videos!

Last time, I showed you how to create your Product Backlog. Today, we are going to work with that Product Backlog and configure our sprints and bring stories from the backlog to the sprint.  By setting our team capacity, we will be able to break down stories into tasks and determine if our team can commit to the stories that are brought in.

To learn more about Visual Studio Online and how it can help your team, check out my Pluralsight course titled Plan, Create, and Deploy to Azure With Visual Studio Online as well as my other courses.

Nebbia Technology partners with organizations to create software products that leverage Microsoft technologies while applying best practices in Application Lifecycle Management.

    Is this possible through MTM2013 using TFS2010 ?

    1. esteban

      No, this is a TFS Feature not an MTM feature, so you need TFS 2013

    When I select Test Case chart, nothing appears in the Group by drop down. Why not?

    In reference to test case charts in tfs 2013 update 4:

      Bruce, make sure that before you try to do charts, you go to the Test tab, then click on Column Options, and add the columns that you want to group by. The charts only act on the data that is displayed on the grid.

    Is there any way to update string in test steps of multiple test cases in one go, like ctrl+h?

    I thought that packages restored to the C:\Users\{user}\.dnx\packages directory? I don’t have the test adapter DLL in my bin folder. In fact, I don’t even have a bin folder.

    Did anybody have the following error:
    Exception discovering tests from Test1: System.BadImageFormatException: Could not load file or assembly ‘C:\a\ff22bda8\xunit\Test1\Test1\bin\Debug\xunit.execution.desktop.dll’ or one of its dependencies. This assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded.
