Big shiny enterprise-sized tools all tend to suffer from a common weakness: flexibility. Flexibility sounds great when customers are evaluating a tool. But it can backfire and actually exacerbate the problems a customer is hoping to solve, if there is no process to underscore and manage the flexibility.
Team Foundation Server by Microsoft has this weakness in droves! Dustin will be presenting some concepts that they've put in place to manage the use of TFS that has elevated it from a painful free-for-all, to a highly effective tool that supports their specific business model perfectly. Yes, he will be discussing everybody's favorite topic …wait for it… PROCESS!
