1. Optimizing Team Efficiency with Visual Studio and TFS
by Tim Ferro (MVP)

Synopsis: Software development is not easy. Managing projects and a team of developers is not easy. Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, Team Foundation Server, and Visual Studio Team Services can help you optimize your development team efficiency, even if you don’t work exclusively on the Microsoft stack.

This session will give an overview of features in each product while focusing on those related to increasing your development team’s efficiency. From project planning, to inline enhancements from CodeLens, this session will show developers, team leads, and project managers how they technologies work together to greatly increase team efficiency and reduce wasted time. 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 why they need to update burn down charts!

2. JavaScript Injection in SharePoint and Office 365 for Branding and More
by Michael Mukalian

Synopsis: Moving to the cloud consistently offers challenges in that many of the ways we used to do things are no longer recommended (or even apply anymore). With the shift to the cloud Microsoft has put forth recommendations for not messing with Master Pages and using “JavaScript Injection” to “properly” brand your sites. The advantage to this new method is that it works in both on-premises and Office 365. We’ll briefly discuss this methodology as well as go through a small example.
