Sorry it took me a week and a half to get to this. We had the most significant VS Online outage we’ve had in a while on Friday July 18th. The entire service was unavailable for about 90 minutes. Fortunately it happened during non-peak hours so the number of affected customers was fewer than it might have been but I know that’s small consolation to those who were affected.
A month ago I wrote about our newly enabled capability to measure quality of service on a customer by customer basis. In that post I mentioned that we had actually identified a customer experiencing issues before they even contacted us about them and had started working with them to understand the issues.
Today we began deployment of our sprint 68 work. There’s a bunch of really good stuff there. I say “begun” because deployment is a multi day event now as we roll it out across instances. Everyone should have the updates by tomorrow (Tue) afternoon.
Through the fall and spring, we transitioned VS Online from Preview to General Availability. That process included changes to branding, the SLA, the announcement of pricing, the end of the early adopter program and more. We’ve been working closely with customers to understand where the friction is and what we can do to make adopting VS Online as easy as possible.
I’m not going to make too big a deal about this because there’s going to be tons of them between now and when VS “14” ships. But we shipped another CTP today and you can learn more about it here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudio/archive/2014/07/08/visual-studio-14-ctp-2-available.aspx We’re continuing the practice of making Azure VM templates available to make it really easy to try out the CTPs.
Years ago, I used to do monthly updates on TFS adoption at Microsoft. Eventually, the numbers got so astronomical that it just seemed silly so I stopped doing them. It’s been long enough and there’s some changes happening that I figured it was worth updating you all on where we are.
I’ve talked about this before but something happened today that got me thinking about it again. One of the necessary components of the rapid release cycle we are on for VS and TFS is an easy and seamless upgrade process. All through the 2012 Update cycle (.1,
This week we are deploying our sprint 67 updates. We’ve started on a set of small changes to the Agile Project Management experience and you’ll see the first of them in this sprint’s release notes: http://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/news/2014-07-01-vso. Of course, we continue moving forward in other areas as well but I hope these will improve your experience.
