Agile with TFS 2015(Team Foundation Server)

Team foundation Server 2015 is out last month with tremendous new features.

First of all let us see basic introduction for those who does not know what is TFS or those who did not work with TFS.

Team Foundation Server (commonly abbreviated to TFS) is a Microsoft product which provides source code management (either via Team Foundation Version Control or Git), reporting, requirements management, project management (for both agile software development and waterfall teams), automated builds, lab management, testing and release management capabilities.

Talking about TFS 2015, it contains some awesome features which will push you to use TFS more than before!

Below is my favorite feature:

 Tools for Agile teams:

This is something what many people were watiing for since long time.

The agile boards in TFS are a critical tool for teams to track their work and progress on a day-to-day basis.

You might have seen these boards in your office:
