Scrum from Team System v3 (SfTS) goes OSS

Microsoft UK Developer Tools Team - Scrum for Team System v3 Open Sourced

"I had an interesting email update about Scrum for Team System today – version 3 is now open sourced and available from Codeplex, with support provided by Crispin Parker:

"Scrum for Team System has been my full time job for the past 4 years. Now I have left EMC Consulting (to pursue my own freelance career); I intend to keep SfTS alive through an open source initiative.

With the online community and SfTS Partners assistance, SfTS can continue to be the foremost free TFS Scrum resource for agile online community. Contributions are not only welcome, but are expected! If you use and love SfTS, then please get involved"


CodePlex - Scrum for Team System

"Scrum for Team System is a free Agile Software Development Methodology add-in for Visual Studio Team System. This project only covers SfTS version 3 (TFS 2010). Previous versions of the template are still available through


Good to see that Scrum for Team System v3 (SfTS) isn't dead. Hats off to Crispin and I hope he can make a go of this...
