Agile Developement with Visual Studio

Hi guys,

yesterday I attended a very interesting session by Stephanie Saad about the agile software development with Visual Studio. It was a great session about agile planning, continuous integration and improvement, connecting with customers and a bunge of other agile practices enabled through the VS tools.
One of (especially for me) the very cool features was the the integration of the SCRUM process methods and practises into the microsoft tools.
The Visual Studio Team System includes Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF) which allows usage of some (e.g. agile) process templates or creation of your own templates. For more info about it, look here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts2008/aa718795.aspx

My highlight is "Task board for VS Team System" by Conchango.

It allows managing of the SCRUM backlog items / tasks by Drag'n'Drop!

Have a look and try this out ....
