Pieter Gheysens

During this event, we will first watch the live stream from the launch event of Visual Studio 2017. 

After that, a hands-on session covering what's new in VSTS & TFS will be given by Pieter Gheysens.

Ever since the VSTS Product Team has started working in 3 weeks sprints to deliver new features to the product, it has been a real eye-opener to witness how fast the product is evolving and how many new features has been introduced since the beginning of Team Foundation Service, Visual Studio Online and now the current name of the product: Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS). In this demo-heavy session we will have a quick look at some of the new interesting features that were added in the last couple of months.
