As you may have noticed, last week at TechEd North America Microsoft unveiled the application lifecycle management (ALM) capabilities of Visual Studio vNext.
Brian Keller provides below 3 easy ways to come up to speed on what's announced so far:
- SpeakFlow is a Silverlight-powered way of delivering rich, interactive content. This SpeakFlow allows you to follow the lifecycle - from development to operations and back again - and view short demons of how VS vNext will help you embrace better app lifecycle management. You must start at the “STORYBOARDING” video (at the top) and then following the circle counter-clockwise.
Tip: To go up a level after drilling in, use your mouse wheel or the UP key on your keyboard.
- Foundational Session: This 60-minute, demo-heavy presentation paints a broader picture of ALM story. The demos here are almost identical to the demos from the SpeakFlow above, but with a bit of a broader story woven around them, and some nice Q&A at the end.
- Whitepaper: Microsoft's marketing team put together a great PDF whitepaper which reinforces the value propositions for what the company is delivering in vNext.
