Speaker**
**Andy Ochsner - Andy Ochsner is a Systems Architect on the Infrastructure .NET team at CSG International.  He's been doing Agile software development almost exclusively throughout his career and believes strongly in TDD and Continuous Integration/Delivery.  He has applied these techniques using a variety of technologies, with C# and Java leading the way.  In his free time, he enjoys brewing beer.
Topic
Life Outside of TFS - Ever wondered what ALM tools are out there besides TFS?  Is it better to go best-of-suite or best-of-breed?  This talk will be your chance to learn!
CSGi writes, builds, deploys, and maintains millions of lines of code across multiple languages and platforms.  It has been undergoing an agile transformation for a number of years now.  Early on in that process, they adopted the practice of Continuous Integration across the entire enterprise and put together a comprehensive ALM solution based on best-of-breed components (Jira, Confluence, Fisheye/Crucible, Jenkins, SVN, NAnt/MSBuild) and home grown tools to fill in the gaps.  I'll give a broad overview of the entire ALM process and the tools we've adopted along the way.
About the Omaha ALM User Group  **Community-driven, technology-agnostic group focused on utilizing tools and automation to support the people and processes across the complete application lifecycle.  We are always looking individuals to share their experience.  Let us know if you are interested in talking at the group.  No prior speaking experience in required.
