Advanced Product Delivery has a proven expertise with working with Visual Studio. We work with your team to develop their capability to administer, maintain and use Visual Studio.
In this practical interactive course, the capabilities and features of Visual Studio are explored. Tailored to suit the skills and experience of the people in the room, core features of Visual Studio are used while working on a sample project.
The features that will empower your team to focus on delivery are used in facilitated exercises. Work Management, Version Control (Visual Studio or Git), Builds and Releases, Testing and Dashboards are used. The class choose the modules that they explore to give them the best benefit of the training. Some features are only available based on the version owned.
Visual Studio is updated regularly, with the online version on a 3 week cadence, and the on-premises version every quarter. The administration of Visual Studio has improved greatly since 2005, however the administration is often overlooked.
A health check of your installation, and how your team are using Visual Studio can help your team focus on the critical work of releasing software. In the health check we will review:
Although most of Visual Studio is designed to look after itself, we will review your maintenance and upgrade plan to keep you up to date. This is particularly important for on-premises installations, especially if you want to use the ever growing capabilities of Visual Studio.
We will review areas of use, and explore other uses with you and your team. We will check in with your operations team and review your Disaster Recovery plan as well!
We have proven experience helping teams large and small adopt Visual Studio. We can discuss with you how to move your work to Visual Studio, either on-premises or in the cloud.
As well as that, if you need any assistance upgrading your on-premises installation of Visual Studio we are experts in that as well!
We can advise on migrations from other tools, and assist with moving your work items, bugs, code and builds to Visual Studio. We have helped teams working with code of many flavours (.NET, Java, PHP) targeting many platforms (Windows, Linus and Mobile).
