Omaha ALM User Group Meeting, 3/18/2014

[Update: The slides for this meeting are now available here]

It’s a bit short notice but the next ALM User Group meeting is tonight at 6:00 PM. Here are the details:


Life Outside of TFS – Ever wondered what ALM tools are out there besides TFS?  Is it better to go best-of-suite or best-of-breed?  This talk will be your chance to learn!

CSGi writes, builds, deploys, and maintains millions of lines of code across multiple languages and platforms.  It has been undergoing an agile transformation for a number of years now.  Early on in that process, they adopted the practice of Continuous Integration across the entire enterprise and put together a comprehensive ALM solution based on best-of-breed components (Jira, Confluence, Fisheye/Crucible, Jenkins, SVN, NAnt/MSBuild) and home grown tools to fill in the gaps.  I’ll give a broad overview of the entire ALM process and the tools we’ve adopted along the way.


Andy Ochsner – Andy Ochsner is a Systems Architect on the Infrastructure .NET team at CSG International.  He’s been doing Agile software development almost exclusively throughout his career and believes strongly in TDD and Continuous Integration/Delivery.  He has applied these techniques using a variety of technologies, with C# and Java leading the way.  In his free time, he enjoys brewing beer.
