Getting most out of TFS2013

TFS is a powerful tool for many things including Work Item Tracking, Source Control and more. But what can you do when the standard templates just don't fit your needs? Every team is different. Did you know that it is actually pretty easy to customize many parts of TFS to fit your team’s process? I've recently upgraded an entire IT department’s source control and work item tracking from TFS 2008 to TFS 2013. During the process I customized many facets of TFS. In this talk, I'll share what I learned along the way. When we are done, you'll be set to start getting the most from TFS.

      TL;DR TFS2013 is pretty awesome and you can customize it to pretty much fit any environment or methodology.
