Do you have code that should be seen by only a subset of members of your on-premises team project collection? Do you use Team Foundation Build (TFBuild)? If so, you must create some custom groups to reduce the risk that unauthorized team project collection members can use a build process to bypass team project permissions.

When you want people on your team to review code in a Git team project on Visual Studio Online, you can use a pull request to review and merge the code. Pull requests enable developers working in topic branches to get feedback on their changes from other developers prior to submitting the code into the master branch.
As Charles announced earlier today, we’ve just released Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server 2013. I’m here today to briefly highlight what’s new in version control and TFBuild and to advise you about a known issue in TFBuild that we’re working to fix.
You want to run some of your business logic during your TFBuild process. Maybe before, or maybe after Team Foundation Build (TFBuild) compiles or tests your code. For example, before you compile, you want to set the version of your assembly files.
I’m here today (and trying real hard to not be jealous of those of you reading this from beautiful San Francisco) to share some new information about version control and Team Foundation Build (TFBuild) in Visual Studio 2013 Preview.

Today we’re here to help you:
Specify how you identify yourself on the changes you commit
Specify the default location for Git repositories
Use images (from either TFS or Gravatar) to identify authors of commits
Use a .gitignore file to block clutter from entering your user experience and your repository
Use the .gitattributes file to make sure changes are correctly recognized by the system
Modify Git settings from the command prompt
