I’ve seen a few reports lately of TFS customers whose databases were growing very rapidly. After investigation, it has often turned out to be that they were uploading a lot of large attachments to TFS as part of their testing process and then not cleaning them up when they were no longer needed.
We’re gradually adding to the resources available to understand what you can do with Team Foundation Server and Project Server using the Team Foundation Server and Project Server Integration Feature Pack to manage enterprise development projects.
Here are 4 new online videos demonstrating various scenarios:
Managing the high-level business requirements in Project Server while the development team manages details in Team Foundation Server
Managing Project details in an Enterprise Project Plan Mapped to a Team Project in Team Foundation Server
Making Agile Team Progress Visible to the Project Management Office
Managing Field Mappings for Integration of Team Foundation Server and Project Server
Here’s a recording of a session from this year’s TechEd with a bunch more information about what you can do: https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/TechEd/NorthAmerica/2011/OSP203
On June 8th,
It’s been a while since I last talked about our work on TFS on Azure and I’ve been feeling like it’s time to give some kind of an update. We made a bunch of new ALM announcements about our ALM roadmap at TechEd and we didn’t say too much about hosted TFS,
For the last year or so I’ve been giving talks about trends in software development and particularly ALM. I’ve described one of the big upcoming trends as the need for better collaboration between development and operations. The state of that collaboration today is not great even given our current technology stacks.
Yesterday was a big day for us! In his keynote at TechEd yesterday Jason Zander gave an overview of our ALM roadmap. In a follow up session Cameron Skinner did more of a deep dive, demonstrating many of the new features coming in the next version.
From the beginning, extensibility of TFS was a core design principle – both to enable great 3rd party partners (like Ekobit, Urban Turtle, InCycle and more) and because almost all development shops have a need to customize the tools they use.
