This week we will be deploying our sprint 126 work. This deployment is probably one of the most complicated in a while. Quite a lot of it actually rolled out at our Connect(); event the week before Thanksgiving and then Thanksgiving week stalled the completion of the deployments so we are just getting back to it this week.
We’re announcing a bunch of new things at Connect(); this week. It’s an exciting time. Connect(); is an annual developer event where we focus particularly on improving the overall experience for developers. We’ve queued up a lot of good news and I wanted to share a few highlights –
My team is responsible for many of the engineering tools we use at Microsoft (affectionately called the One Engineering System or 1ES – paralleling Satya’s “One Microsoft” mantra).

A month or so ago we opened a Visual Studio Team Services instance in Canada and yesterday it occurred to me to wonder how that was going. I sent mail to someone who “owns” that scenario and after a little back and forth I had the answer.
This week we started our sprint 125 deployment. You can read the release notes for details.
I won’t comment too much on the new capabilities this sprint. There’s a bunch of nice stuff but not a lot that is earth shaking.
