Visual Studio 2005 Team System (aka Burton)

Buck Hodges

The official web site for Visual Studio 2005 Team System is now live, including a Burton blog called AskBurton. I am a developer working on the Burton source control system (Team Foundation), which we code-named Hatteras. Over time I plan to add details about Hatteras and how it works. Here is a good description of Team Foundation from the Team Development page.

Visual Studio Team Foundation provides integrated source control, work item tracking, reporting, and custom policies that enable your team to efficiently manage change in your software development projects. The components of Team Foundation include work item tracking, source code control, policy support and notifications, and report generating capabilities. By integrating these change management components seamlessly, we unobtrusively inject SCM process and team-specific requirements into the developer’s daily workflow.

If you are at TechEd, be sure to see presentations by Brian Harry, our product unit manager (PUM), and Doug Neumann, our program manager for Burton source control.
