Foreword by way of Ken Schwaber

It is my honor to jot down a foreword for Sam’s book,  Agile software program supply with visible Studio. Sam is either a practitioner of software program improvement, in addition to a pupil. i've got labored with Sam for the final years to merge Scrum with smooth engineering practices and a very good toolset, Microsoft’s VS 2010. we're either indebted to Aaron Bjork of Microsoft, who built the Scrum template that instantiates Scrum in VS 2010 throughout the Scrum Template.


I don't need Scrum to be prescriptive. I left many holes, similar to what because the syntax and association of the Product Backlog, the engineering practices that grew to become Product Backlog goods right into a very likely shippable increment, and the magic that may create self-organizing groups. Sam has fantastically defined a technique of filling in those holes in his booklet. He describes the strategies and tooling, in addition to the reason of the method that he prescribes. He does this intimately, with scope and humor. on the grounds that i've got labored with Microsoft in view that 2004 and Sam considering 2009 on those practices and tooling, i'm thrilled. Our first release used to be a path, the pro Scrum Developer .NET direction, that taught builders the right way to use strong increments utilizing glossy engineering practices on VS 2010 — operating in self-organizing, cross-functional groups. Sam’s booklet is the bible to this direction and extra, laying all of it out intimately and philosophy. while you're on a Scrum group development software program with .NET applied sciences, this is often the ebook for you. when you are utilizing Java, this e-book is compelling adequate to learn besides, and perhaps worthy switching to .NET.


When we devised and signed the Agile Manifesto in 2001, our first worth used to be “Individuals and interactions over approaches and tools.”  good, now we have the methods and instruments nailed for the Microsoft setting. In Sam’s ebook, we have now anything builders, who're additionally humans, can use to appreciate the process and price of the techniques and instruments. Now the quite labor, humans. After 20 years of being handled as assets, turning into liable, inventive, accountable humans is hard.  Our first problem often is the those that deal with the builders. they can use the metrics from the VS 2010 tooling to micro-manage the techniques and builders, squeezing the final little bit of creativity out and leaving Agility flat. Or, they can use the metrics from the instruments to appreciate the demanding situations dealing with the builders. they can then trainer and cause them to a greater, extra artistic and efficient position. this can be the problem of any device. it can be first-class, yet the way it is used will ensure its luck.


Thanks for the booklet, Sam.
