Certified as Professional Scrum Developer Trainer

"A fool with a tool, is still a fool."

TFS is a great tool, but still it doesn't tell you how to do things. To close the missing gaps you need practices and a framework (like Scrum). Luckily, Scrum.org and Microsoft started the Professional Scrum Developer Program (PSD), which trains people in all three topics.

An ideal combination:

ProfessionalScrumDeveloper_500pxScrum + TFS + modern Practices

Additionally this will be the only official course on Visual Studio 2010 team features and Team Foundation Server 2010 autorized by Microsoft (no MOC courses).

Since this summer, I 'm certified as Professional Scrum Master (PSM) and as one of the Professional Scrum Developer Trainers (PSDT) that will be teaching the course.

Download Tip: Create Regular Expressions in a snap

I have almost no clue about Regular Expressions, but still I can create even pretty complex RegEx patterns in a snap and therefore can impress collegues with those (almost non-existant) skills.

How do I do that, you will ask?

Well, I use Expresso Regular Expression Tool

It's free (although you have to register after a period to receive your free registration code) and helped me a lot. Highly Recommended!
