Don't miss this one-time event and deep dive on "Customizing the Build Process with TFS 2010 Build and Workflow Foundation." In TFS 2010, the automated build infrastructure has been revamped to use Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) instead of MSBuild. Ed will present and answer questions on how to customize the default build process template and how to leverage multiple aspects of the workflow implementation for TFS 2010 Build.  
Ed is the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Practice Technical Lead with Imaginet (formerly Notion Solutions). His expertise is in Microsoft Visual Studio Team System and Team Foundation Server in which he has been actively using, managing, and implementing for nearly five years since the beginning of those products in 2005. He has been awarded since 2008 as a Microsoft MVP in Visual Studio ALM, Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio Team System.
Ed was voted as the Microsoft MVP of the Year (Visual Studio ALM, TFS) for 2010 by his peers.
As an ALM Consultant, he assists organizations with improving their development lifecycle by suggesting improvements to their processes and implementing Application Lifecycle Management tools to assist with that improvement. By using Visual Studio ALM and Team Foundation Server, customers can immediately see value from their improvements.
Ed was previously the Release Engineering Manager at Infragistics where he led a multi-year TFS & Visual Studio Team System implementation to improve the development process lifecycle.
Ed is the lead author of the Wrox Professional Team Foundation Server 2010 book, has been a technical editor for the Wrox Silverlight 1.0, Silverlight 2 Developer's Guide, Silverlight 3 Programmer's Reference, and Silverlight 2 Bible books, author of numerous articles, and has spoken at various user groups, events, radio shows, and conferences.
