Professional Scrum Development with Azure Devops

Hundhausen, Richard



This is the definitive guide to maximizing the value of today's Scrum and DevOps methodologies with state-of-the-art Microsoft cloud tools and services, including Azure DevOps Services, specifically Azure Boards and Azure Test Plans. Renowned Scrum expert Richard Hundhausen has comprehensively revamped and updated his classic Professional Scrum Development with Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 to reflect the latest Scrum Guide, Microsoft's breakthrough development tools, GitHub integration, and developers' deeper experience with Scrum.
Professional Scrum Development with Azure DevOps stands apart from all other Scrum and Azure guides by focusing on the fusion of today's most popular agile framework (Scrum) and ALM/DevOps toolset (Azure DevOps). Hundhausen shows how a professional Scrum team can more effectively plan, track, and manage its work with Azure Boards, Azure Test Plans, and related Azure DevOps features. He offers detailed coverage of team formation, backlogs, sprints, test plans, collaboration, flow, continuous improvement, and the real-world tradeoffs between using tools and interacting directly with other team members. To make this guide even more valuable, Hundhausen has crafted it to complement's popular Professional Scrum Developer (PSD) program, which he personally created with's Ken Schwaber.
