Today I was accepted into the Microsoft ALM Rangers! (Ranger's Blog)
I have been actively corresponding with several members of the Visual Studio Team over the past several months as I upgraded TFS project collections, processes, and worked on integrating Lab Management and automated testing into various processes. Brian Keller (Senior Technical Evangelist in the Visual Studio ALM group) has been particularly helpful directing me to others that could help solve some of the challenges encountered. During this communication, he referred me to Willy-Peter Schaub so that I could share some of the challenges we have had and overcame and to participate with the Rangers.
I have worked heavily with Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server since the beginning. This experience has been very helpful in helping our clients integrate sound policies and practices, as well as getting the most out of many aspects of the whole product suite. There is so much capability there to be leveraged, many only scratch the surface in the ways they utilize the product's features and functionality.
As an ALM Ranger, initially I will be helping with the Lab Management Guide. I am excited to share some of the insight and challenges I have overcome in the past several months as we implemented it here, and as usual, pushed the envelope. The Rangers are made up of internal Microsoft people, MVP's and key people within the ALM community. It is a great honor to be associated with Rangers.
