Visual Studio is a monumental leap forward for Microsoft development. There are so many useful enhancements and features that each could be their own session. This session will give an overview of the new Visual Studio features then focus on those related to developer productivity, Application Lifecycle Management, Team Foundation Server, and .NET Framework. From project planning, to inline enhancements from CodeLens, this session will show developers, team lead, and project managers why Visual Studio 2013/2015 is worth upgrading to immediately!

Rarely do you find a session that attracts both developers and Project Managers, but this is it! Developers come and see all the new enhancements for Visual Studio and bring your Project Managers to show them how it will increase productivity. Project Managers come see the enhancements for project management and application lifecycle management and bring your developers to show them how to update burn down charts!
