Shining the Light on Rosario

Today is an important milestone in the march towards the Rosario release of Visual Studio Team System. Among the announcements is the official name of the release.  It will be called Visual Studio Team System 2010.  We also announced that it will ship in concert with Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4.0.  That should ...

VSTS Demos

I have been thinking a lot lately about how to demonstrate the value of what we are doing in our Rosario release.  There is so much and there are so many ways to talk about it.  The first idea I stumbled across was what I call "Wow!" demos.  The goal would be to create a set of demos that show how Team System enables people to ...

Managing your TFS Server data

I recently got a recommendation from someone to check out "TFS Data Manager" from OnePulse.  It was described as "Phenomenal".  I've taken a few minutes to browse their web site and what I see looks very good.  They are solving a bunch of problems customers ask about often - moving projects between servers, back up and restore ...

Charting a course for TFS "Rosario"

It's been on my mind recently to talk about some of the assumptions and pre-requisites that are going to exist for the Rosario release of Team Foundation Server.  The main reason is to make sure people have plenty of time to prepare for it.  It's still going to be a while before this information is actionable but I just want to make ...

More 3rd party support for Team System

In all of the hectic activity of the last couple of months I missed a couple of important partner announcements.  Two (at least, I may find more I've missed yet) partners have released support for Team System in the past couple of months. VersionOne - VersionOne is one of the leading Agile project management tools in the market. ...

Belated announcement of an update to the eScrum process template

I apologize.  I'm about a month late in getting out this announcement and promised I'd announce it as soon as it happened :(  It just slipped through the cracks of a very busy summer (I was on vacation at the beach the week it released :)). The eScrum process template for Microsoft Team Foundation Server has been updated.  You ...

Migration Toolkit and TFS to TFS updates

I've seen quite a lot of people having problems with and ultimately abandoning use of the Migration Toolkit and the TFS to TFS migration tool over the past year or so.  In my mind, there are two categories of reasons for this 1) People are expecting the tool (particularly the TFS to TFS tool) to solve a problem that it does not solve and ...

A new Team System users group (with a twist)

A couple of our MVPs have hatched an interesting idea.  They are starting a "virtual" Team System users group.  The advantage is that they can pull people from disparate locations (both members and presenters).  The disadvantage, obviously, is that it's less personal.  It seems to me like it has got great potential to serve...
