In Episode 5, we were joined by Brian A. Randell who is a Visual Studio ALM MVP (ALM is "Application Lifecyle Management").

Brian not only still does some coding, but he helps teams to improve their processes from idea to shipping into production, to management and monitoring. In addition, he’s become obsessed over the last few years with natural user interfaces and how to create compelling user experiences regardless of platform.

In addition to this, Brian has also co-authored “Professional Application Lifecycle Management with Visual Studio 2013” from Wrox Publishing which you can purchase on Amazon here.
