This training course is for Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) in May and June of 2016. In 2020 Microsoft calls that product Azure DevOps.

Background on this Training

I created this training courseware and conducting all of the training for over a dozen Scrum teams, while I was working at Heat Software, which was later renamed to Ivanti in 2018.
