How to use Team Foundation Server to Manage the SharePoint Life Cycle

6/9/2011 12:00 PM Time zone: (GMT-07:00) Mountain Time (US & Canada)

SharePoint has made tremendous impact in the enterprise for several reasons –affordability, ease of implementation, and rapid application deployment opportunities. For these same reasons SharePoint has introduced risk in the organization because effective development practices are not viewed as necessary or useful for SharePoint deployments. SharePoint is a powerful platform for Rapid Application Development (RAD) and often has an even shorter lifecycle than traditional RAD projects. In this session we will discuss and demonstrate the role that TFS plays in the effective management of SharePoint implementations and custom development. Requirements, testing, version control, and deployment of custom features for SharePoint will be demonstrated using TFS and VS 2010.
