Manual testing in the browser

In my Update 1 preview post 6 weeks ago, I described a new capability enabling test case management and manual testing from within a browser, rather than having to install Test Professional on the target machine.  Unfortunately, we had to make the decision a couple of weeks ago to pull that from Update 1.  That, of course, is the ...

Typescript – a real world story of adoption in TFS

As you may know, we've had a web UI for TFS for quite some time.  In our TFS 2012 release, we did a pretty major overhaul of our web UI to modernize it - both in look and feel and in architecture.  We moved to REST/Json, and a lot more in-browser Javascript and a lot fewer Ajax calls.  The result has been a faster, more ...

Building a goat barn

It’s been a long time since my last farm post.  As I’m just wrapping up a major project, I figure now is a good time to provide an update.  When we first bought the farm, we thought our primary activity was going to be goats.  After doing some research on difficulty of raising goats, market for goats, etc we decided to go ...

Codeplex upgraded to TFS 2012

I haven’t been blogging about it regularly (because there’s a separate Codeplex blog) but Codeplex continues to march forward.  We’ve done some good work on pull request workflow, work on streamlining and bringing forward the code focused experience, etc.  This last week, we also upgraded our Codeplex TFS servers to...
