Project Server 2010 and TFS 2010 Integration VM with Labs



I’m pretty excited that a new virtual machine is now available that has everything you need to start working with the integration between Project Server 2010 and Team Foundation Server 2010 SP1.  A lot of work by a good group of people has gone in to get this VM out and now it should be super easy to learn & play with the integration.  Not only is everything setup and configured already (which is half the battle when trying out new things) but you also get:

  • Four hands on labs that walk through the main scenarios that are supported by the integration.
    • One of them that is particular interesting is how to give visibility to the Project Management Office (PMO) when you have development teams practicing one of the many Agile methodologies.  Those two concepts can come at odds with one another and I think the integration plays nicely with that scenario if your company finds itself in this position.
  • Tons of sample active directory users that are available in both Team Foundation Server and the Project Server Enterprise Resource Pool that allow you to setup lots of different scenarios.
  • Sample data, team projects, and enterprise project plans to get you started.
