Building the Right Software: Generating Storyboards and Collecting Stakeholder Feedback with Visual Studio 11
In this lab, you'll learn how new capabilities of Visual Studio 11 will make it possible to both rapidly storyboard your requirements, and - as your software evolves - get rich, actionable feedback from users of your software which can help shape what you deliver.
How often have you built the software that your users asked for, but not necessarily what they wanted? In a world of increasingly complex software projects, it is critical that we can accurately capture requirements from users, which can then be translated into working software. In this lab, you’ll learn how new capabilities of Visual Studio 11 will make it possible to both rapidly storyboard your requirements, and – as your software evolves – get rich, actionable feedback from users of your software which can help shape what you deliver.
About the Fabrikam Fiber Scenario
This set of hands-on-labs uses a fictional company, Fabrikam Fiber, as a backdrop to the scenarios you are learning about. Fabrikam Fiber provides cable television and related services to the United States. They are growing rapidly and have embraced Windows Azure to scale their customer-facing web site directly to end-users to allow them to self-service tickets and track technicians. They also use an on-premises ASP.NET MVC application for their customer service representatives to administer customer orders.
In this set of hands-on labs, you will take part in a number of scenarios that involve the development and testing team at Fabrikam Fiber. The team, which consists of 8-10 people, has decided to use Visual Studio application lifecycle management tools to manage their source code, run their builds, test their web sites, and plan and track the project.
