  1. ALM Ranger Guidance
  2. TFS  Service Preview
  3. New Agile Planning Tools
  4. Client Feedback Tool

  6. Team Explorer Changes

Register here  since the security desk REQUIRES a list of attendees 24 hours in advance of the meeting. Food should be available at 6:30PM and the presentation will start as soon as peoeple are ready since there’s a lot to cover. The location is the Microsoft office on the third floor at 3025 Highland Parkway in Downers Grove Illinois. We also ask that if you need to cancel that you do so by letting Angela know so the group can be considerate of the funding it has.
