Peter Carson, President of Envision IT, has been confirmed as the featured speaker at the February 15th meeting of the Toronto SharePoint Users Group (TSPUG). The presentation topic is Application Lifecycle Management for SharePoint in the Enterprise.
SharePoint has become mission critical, complex, and wide-ranging in most enterprises. How do we apply the best practices of ALM in this environment? We'll cover using System Center Virtual Machine Manager and AutoSPInstall to quickly provision dev, test, and production farms by leveraging HyperV, Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server to manage an Agile Scrum team, and build servers and automated testing to create a continuous integration environment. The goal is to build a change management process that merges the content authored in production with the code written in development effectively. This will be illustrated using demonstrations of real-world projects built this way.
- How to create an environment to support your SharePoint dev and QA teams
- Agile and continuous integration in a SharePoint environment
