In the last couple of months I have been working with the ALM Rangers on investigating how to deal with Technical Debt, and particularly how to use SonarQube with existing TFS 2013 environments.
The current result of this research is a short but to-the-point guide on how to do a SonarQube installation for an existing team foundation server 2013 single server environment. You can get it from Codeplex at http://vsarguidance.codeplex.com/releases/view/614602.
Being proactive in adapting SonarQube to be used with TFS and VSO is yet another example of Microsoft’s change of positioning, after achieving one of the leadership positions in the Gartner report, to become an even more open ALM platform which now allows seamless cross-platform development, including all kinds of mobile applications.
Update: This guide has been moved to github.
I mentioned last January about Scrum Day in Dallas in March 27th. So the meeting happened and we have a few slide deck PDFs for your reference:
- Keynote by Ken Schwaber: Scaled Scrum - Download
- Practical Scaling - Download
- The New New Product Owner – Download
- Team Performance: The Impact of Clean Code & CD - Download
This last session was nice and typical of Scrum.org: most trainers are also developers and highly technical, with emphasis on what Agile teams look for.
As for the Face to Face meetings, I will go over some of the content in another post.
