Chris Menegay's article on MSDN, Using Source Code Control in Team Foundation, provides a good overview of some of the major features. As a part of Visual Studio 2005 Team System and the new Team Foundation Server, Microsoft is providing a true enterprise-class source code control system. Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) is provided as p
Akash Maheshwari, PM for the source control converters for TFS, has posted a set of articles on using the VSS converter with TFS beta 3. You'll want to check that out if you are converting from VSS, because that's the most up-to-date source of information.

Today we signed off on Team Foundation Beta 3! If you used beta 2, beta 3 is a vast improvement. Beta 3 should hopefully show up on MSDN in about two days. You may remember that beta 3 has the go-live license and will be supported for migration to the final release version 1, which means this is the last time you have to star
Here in North Carolina, we have a 10Mb connection to the outside world (it was a 3Mb connection until a few months ago), so we know what it's like to use TFS remotely. In addition to minimizing the number of requests from the client to the server, TFS Version Control contains several features that aid in working in a situation where the

Doug Neumann's TLN301 presentation, VSTS: Behind the Scenes of Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server (slides), featured a demonstration of how to use the server's check-in event notification to kick off a build for a continuous integration build system using Team Build. A number of people asked for it, so we've decided to post i
