Visual Studio 2012 ALM with Matt Cosner

Nowadays, having a great Revision Control System is not enough. You need to optimize your process by integrating most of the elements of your software development process. This is what Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio 2012 Application Lifecycle Management offer. Come and find out what's new from the VS2012 ALM team itself. There will be plenty of chance to ask YOUR questions.

Matt Cosner has worked at Microsoft as an SDET (Software Design Engineer in Test) & Test Lead for the last 12 years since graduating from Washington University in St. Louis in 2001. He worked in the Redmond Area until moving to Erie, CO in 2011 - He really enjoys having more than a wet season and a dry season.
His entire time within Microsoft has been in the enterprise space of Visual Studio, though he spent about a year working on TFS. Over the last four years, he has been responsible for managing a new type of end-to-end focused test team which covers scenarios that span all of the ALM teams.
When not working, he has adopted the local tendency of spending his time enjoying the great outdoors (usually hiking/running). He enjoys watching NFL Football and building computers for friends and family. And like a good Coloradoan, he has started homebrewing.

    The room has poor acoustics and he spoke somewhat softly, so sitting in the back sometimes I had a hard time hearing. Otherwise it was informative and useful.

    Matt had good knowledge of the new features in VS 2012. But, he didn't have a lot of material prepared to present. Plus, there were some technical difficulties in showing some of the features that folks wanted to see (Internet access problems mainly). Overall, it was good.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
