Team Services Update – Sept 2

Yes, I'm a bit late on this one.  I was traveling to India and Israel in early Sept and didn't have a change to post about this. A little over a week ago we deployed the sprint 105 work to Team Services.  Check out the release notes for details. We continued our journey this sprint to bring full process customization to Team Services with ...

Paid extensions in the Visual Studio marketplace

It's hard to believe it but it's been almost a year since we introduced the Visual Studio Marketplace.  It provides a single point of entry for finding extensions for Visual Studio, VS Team Services and VS Code - and since then hundreds upon hundreds of new extensions have been published.  From day one, our vision was to enable the ...

New navigation for Team Services

In my blog post announcing TFS 15 RC1, I mentioned that we are working on a new navigation UI.  In a somewhat unusual turn of events, it showed up in an on premises preview before it showed up in the cloud.  Today we enabled the new navigation experience in Team Services, making it really easy for anyone to give it a try. This new experience...

Team Services Update – Aug 17

I missed a few updates while I was out over the summer but, hopefully, now I'm back on my normal cadence. This week, we are deploying our sprint 104 work to VS Team Services.  It looks to me like it's a new record on number of items (defined by number of lines in the release notes) released in a sprint.  You can read the release notes for ...

Pre-reqs for Team Foundation Server 15

A couple of aspects of this have come up on the post where I announced the TFS 15 RC1 and I thought it was worth a more explicit call out.  First some context. We have 2 release "types" for TFS - major releases (TFS 2013, TFS 2015, TFS 15, etc.) and Updates (TFS 2015 Update 1, TFS 2015 Update 2, ...).  We think about them very differently ...

What I missed while I was relaxing this summer

I missed blogging about a ton of stuff that happened in late June and most of July while I was out.  I'm not going to try to recap is all.  You can find lots of it on the Visual Studio ALM blog or in the Team Services release notes.  I do want to highlight a few things though. Hopefully, now that I'm back, I'll be able ...

Where in the world is Brian?

I apologize for being away for so long.  It's been a weird summer.  I was out of the office for almost a month and have spent the last week furiously trying to catch up.  So I've been absent from my blog for a while now.  I'll fill you in on some of the details. Italy This year is my parent's 50th anniversary.  My brother and I (well ...
