Visual Studio 2005 Team System is Microsoft's addition to the Visual Studio toolset for communication and collaboration amongst teams by way of a lifecycle tool. Wrox author Jean-Luc David (Professional Visual Studio 2005 Team System, Wrox, 2006 ISBN: 0-7645-8436-7) was a featured speaker at the Atlanta Code Camp on May 13, 2006, and presented a 68-minute, on-screen demo of how development teams will work with Visual Studio 2005 Team System. We've recorded his presentation and have it here for you so that you can follow along as he builds code and works through processes on-screen and listen to him narrate and explain each step. By the time he's done, you'll have a good idea of how to put VSTS to work in your setting to build higher quality code at every step of the development cycle, to enforce coding standards, and other VSTS tasks. The first five minutes of the presentation are a few PPT slides describing the session and tool and from there, the remainder is all hands-on work in VSTS.
