This three day course is designed for team members who are responsible for the installation, configuration and administration of Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2013. It features an equal mix of lectures and hands-on lab exercises designed to ensure attendees gain the maximum benefit from the course.
This course has been designed to equip attendees with a solid knowledge of the many areas that a TFS champion is often called upon to configure and manage. Key topics covered in this course include product installation, security & permissions, reporting, customisation and team build.
