Re: [scrumdevelopment] Scrum Management in MS heavy environment.
- View SourceHi, I think specific tools for developing in a .net environment are
fairly independent of Scrum. However if you want to incorporate other
agile based "engineering practices" then the alt.net community focus a
lot on such tools and technologies in a .net environment.
As far as in integrated suite goes, then the whole MS Team Foundation
System could be relevant. There are third party templates for team
foundation server such as Scrum for Team System that are supposedly
ideal for scrum.
I personally prefer mixing and matching the better tools rather than
using integrated suites. e.g. MS Test seems to be ok for unit testing,
but once moving towards TDD and BDD you need something like MbUnit or
xUnit, as well as a mocking framework like Rhino Mocks.
Have a look at some of the open source tools such as nant,
cruisecontrol.net, etc. They seem to embody the agile mindset a bit
more than the microsoft offerings.
Ask the question on the alt.net mailing list, you will get some good
As far as scrum itself, a pinboard works well for colocated teams.
