14:00 – 15:00 Practical Guide to Project Server and TFS Integration

The world of developers and project managers differs a lot. Developers concentrate on producing the best code, using the best tools and they hate reporting and planning. Project managers love to plan, track progress and hold developers responsible for all delays in the project plan. If you want to make both teams happy, the simple recipe is to make sure that the tools they are using can talk to each other. By integrating Team Foundation Server and Project Server project plan and reporting can be constantly monitored without having to prepare long status reports or leaving Visual Studio. Join the session to learn how to get this integration done with least amount of effort and frustration.
