A couple of months ago OpenMake released support for TFS in their Meister cross platform build and deployment product.  This product integrates with TFS's Build capability to enable you to build & deploy applications that include ...

A new home for Visual Studio Hotfixes

Pictures of my farm

My sabbatical is almost over.  I've got one week left.  But at the moment, I'm taking a sabbatical from my sabbatical :).  I'm in Redmond for the next two weeks to attend our MVP summit and some other important meetings.  After that I'll be back on the farm for a week and then back to work for good.  When I'm all done...

SOX Compliance with Team System

I frequently get asked about how Team System can help with SOX compliance.  Unfortunately, the answer is not simple.  SOX relates to the management of transactions t hat affect assets and is undertaken with the help of a qualified appraiser who defines a risk management framework for your business.  Some of the risks man very ...
