June DevDev TFS statistics
June DevDev TFS statistics
The biggest area of growth in the last month is in work item tracking activity.  The reason is that we hooked up a mirror between our "old" work item tracking system and TFS.  This means that changes in each system is being replicated into the other.  This has added some additional load to the server (although the increment is ...

Last night I returned from Tech-Ed 2006.  I got  to do one presentation on TFS - sort of a "day in the life demo".  Unfortunately feeback was mixed - some people loved it but the pattern in the negative feedback was that the screen resolution was too high making it too hard to see and that I tried to cover too much stuff and ...

TFS statistics queries
TFS statistics queries
You know how it goes - somehow there's just never enough days in the week to get everything done you want to get done.  A couple of weeks ago I promised to post the queries I use to collecting statistics on our server - and other than feeling bad about it, I haven't done much. I'm at Tech Ed this week and looking for any excuse to avoid ...

Deploying TFS in the Developer Division at Microsoft
You haven't heard from me for a while because I've been taking a bit of a break for the past month to help out at home with our new daughter.  I returned to work on Monday.  As I'm getting back into the swing of things, I thought it would be a great time to write a new blog post.  I apologize for the length – there’s...

Update on the TFS MSSCCI Provider
I want to appologize for the problems people have experienced with strong name signing and the updated MSSCCI provider.  We should not have posted it with a manual work around of disabling strong name signing for the test key.  Although many developers will already have it disabled for testing their own code, it's generally a bad ...
