In this second session of 13 parts series “Bridging The Gap Between Developers and Testers Using Visual Studio 2010,” Etienne and Vincent show us the basics of a Scrum-based backlog and how to connect and migrate a backlog to Team Foundation Server from Excel.
They also introduce us to DemoApp and the bug that’s in the code. The bug will be worked on in later sessions of the conversation. During the Q&A session, Etienne also talks about and defines terms used in different methodologies, integration between TFS and Project, and TFS’s API.

Once the build is done, they show us how to read the progress report and understand the information it displays.
