Hello!  It's been a while... since our last OTSUG meeting.  We're pleased to announce that our next user group meeting will take place on Tuesday, November 15th (one week earlier than usual due to Thanksgiving the following week).
Meeting Details**
**Kinban - Integrating Microsoft's Kinect with Team Foundation Server.  A couple of months back, Farm Credit Services of America sponsored GeekFest 2011 – an internal activity allowing development teams to spend roughly 48 hours on any project idea they had passion around.  Out of this came several great product concepts, one of which was “Kinban”.  Kinban adds life to your planning meetings and morning stand-ups by allowing the project team members to move stories and tasks around with hand gestures – via Microsoft’s Kinect.
Jeremy Novak, one of the Kinban team members, will talk about the inner workings of Kinban.  He will discuss the Kinect SDK they utilized to interact with the Kinect device, the various Team Foundation Server APIs needed to interact with TFS, as well as other 3rd party solutions that helped to bring it all together.
If you have an interest in seeing non-traditional approaches to managing stories and tasks with TFS and how it's all put together under the covers, please join us at this month’s OTSUG meeting.  We hope to see you there!
SpeakerJeremy Novak has over 15 years of software development experience and is currently employed by Farm Credit Services of America.  Jeremy is very passionate about technology and has been working with .NET as well as other software development technologies such as jQuery, Knockout, and more.
