Dev lead for Team Build
For three years I worked on Team Foundation Server Version Control. Most of my contributions were to the version control object model, the tf.exe command line, and general infrastructure. After v1 shipped in March, we reorganized the TFS organization.
Version 1 of TFS Team Build was developed by a small team in India, led by Gautam. As part of the April reorganization, the Team Build feature moved to North Carolina, and I became the dev lead. It’s still a small team, compared to version control and work item tracking.
Durham, North Carolina is now home to the build automation, version control, and administration & operations teams. The work item tracking, reporting, and office integration teams reside in Redmond. The office has grown to the point that it’s basically a 50/50 split with Redmond.
I’ve been trying to keep track of blogs that have posts about Team Build. If you blog about Team Build, please leave a comment on this post or contact me so that I can subscribe. If you have specific feedback on features you need to be more productive or event to consider using Team Build (yes, we know that happens), post a trackback to this post or contact me.
If you have questions, the MSDN Team Build forum is a great place to get answers, both from the team at Microsoft and from the community.
If you noticed a while back that I changed my blog’s subtitle, reorganized my links to Team Foundation blogs, and started writing about Team Build, you now know why. And just in case you are wondering, I’ll still write about version control as well.
