Our book guides you and your team towards better software development by showing you how to embrace the values and practices of a top performing team through a series of step-by-step exercises using the freely available trial edition of Visual Studio Team System.


The book is organized into ten sections which build-up a team’s competence in the key areas of software development. It is a big book as you can see from the table of contents, but it condenses into one volume what you might otherwise need to find in half a dozen or so books.
