Hi,

We have build an automation framework in Powershell. It contain some servers, W10 vms, a share, a front end GUI. Everything is on prem now, code on a internal Git server.

We did develop it with 3 guys, but cannot work continuously on it. We want to make the approach more professionaly (open source it maybe later on, so work with more People on it) so look into Azure Devops boards, Agile way.

I m new to Agile (reading docs on it as we speak), but would like a jump start: I know little bit about Agile  (Epic, Feature, Task, Bug), but dont have time to go deep into it right now.

I d like to organize current work into Azure Boards so we can stop using OneNote and/or Microsoft Team Planner.

However, dont find a good way/start to move topics to Azure Boards (Agile)
Next step will be pipeline.

Please give some guidance to start.

Thanks!
J

When I first learned about Agile this article really helped me to understand the breakdown of development methods and what would be the best fit for my team and I.  Let me know what you think about this article and I can try to answer follow up questions with the development method you're interested in trying.

I apologize I don't have knowledge in Powershell to answer that part of your question.

I thought I should also mention that I've worked with JIRA (by Atlassian) for several years and recently switched to Azure Devops.  Is there a difference?  Not really.  They're like Trello boards on steroids.  They're brilliant project management boards.  For example, one part of Azure devops is that it can be used to break down what are essentially User Stories (product features, bugs, customer issues, etc) down into tasks where the developer picks up a task to work on.  They assign it to themselves and when they're done they let the QA (tester) know its ready for testing.  Amid this there are other devs who are notified of Pull Requests which essentially just means the developer needs his peers to review his code changes before committing them to the master file of their product.

Additionally, what is your role in your development method?

Are you the developer?
Are you the Scrum master?
Are you the product owner?
Are you all of the above?
