Come out to our December Super Awesome Holiday Blowout Extravaganza! In case you have been hiding away from all sources of information, .NET is going open source! Much of the framework is going on GitHub and Microsoft is creating CLR for Mac and Linux.

And, Visual Studio Community - functionally equivalent to Pro - is available for free to open source devs and students!!

...and what do you know? Scott Hanselman is ENTHUSED!

Scott will share more about the direction that Microsoft is taking!

Dustin Woodhouse

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!
