  2. MSF for Agile Software Development 2013 - Choose Agile if your organization triages bugs separately from the product backlog and resolves work items before closing them. Also, choose Agile if your team allocates time for bugs with each sprint
  3. MSF for CMMI Process Improvement 2013  - Choose CMMI if your organization triages bugs separately from the product backlog, resolves work items before closing them, and tracks changes to requirements formally. The CMMI template  is designed to support formal change management processes.

    Hi Om Prakash,

    Thanks for your proposal. It looks like you are planning to do a 45 mins demo of the product instead of a talk. Is that correct?

    Also we feel 45 mins is too long for a demo. Can this be compressed to 20 mins demo?

    If yes, can you update the proposal by adding a time wise break of the demo under the structure section?

    Also can you please fix the link to your slides? Is it possible to share videos of your any past presentation? Videos and Slides are a must for us to understand your presentation skills.

    Thank you.
