While you’re still enjoying the last of the Q2 2010 Webinar Week events, you can start looking forward to even more online events from Telerik next week. This first event next week is a big one. We will be officially launching TeamPulse, Telerik’s newest product, and we’ll be giving free licenses to all webinar attendees (more on that in a second)!
TeamPulse expands Telerik’s focus beyond software construction and testing, and introduces tools to help you in the early days of software project planning. TeamPulse is designed to make it easy to capture ideas, personas, user stories, and all related information needed to plan your software project. Built completely in Silverlight, TeamPulse is a rich visual tool designed for ease-of-use and intended to be consumed by developers, business analysts, and all members of a project team.
And while there are many agile planning tools around today, TeamPulse is doing many unique things (even in v1) that set it apart, such as:
- Best Practice Guidance for Agile Teams – New to agile? Great! TeamPulse is here to help by providing built-in Best Practice Analysis. It’s like static code analysis for software development practices. TeamPulse will help check for best practice behavior and highlight areas that need attention.
- Agile with Dates – Many agile tools don’t acknowledge the reality that projects exist in a date-driven world. TFS makes it especially hard to plan iterations and sprints with dates. With TeamPulse, you can be agile while still using dates to schedule your iterations and sprints.
- Integration with TFS (coming in vNext) – If you’re a TFS shop, TeamPulse is a perfect addition. You can easily plan in TeamPulse (think of it as your sandbox) and then sync with TFS to carry your items, area, and iterations in to construction.
Clearly, there is much more happening in TeamPulse that we think you’ll enjoy. To see it all in action, join us for the launch webinar on Tuesday, July 27th at 11:00 AM. As extra incentive, we’ll be giving TeamPulse licenses to ALL live attendees of the event! We’ll also giveaway 3 Telerik Ultimate Collection licenses! What are you waiting for?! Register now!
