- Improve Software Testing – Take The Driving Seat – Phil Edward
Before you can begin to improve software testing in your organisation, you need to refresh yourself as to why testing is so important.
- DevOps: Load Tests Need to be Part of Your Regular Deployments – Greg Low
One of the principles of DevOps is that you should be able to deploy regularly, with smaller low-risk changes.
- Create GitHub release with release notes in VSTS pipeline – Mikael Krief
I included another task in this extension to create a GitHub release with a release notes during your VSTS CI/CD pipeline.
- Using the NavigationService in your VSTS and TFS extension – Wouter de Kort
Last week a user of our Team Project Health extension reported an issue when using the extension on Team Foundation Server 2018. Here’s the resolution.
- VSTS and TeamCity – Wrapping up – David Gardiner
Wouldn’t it be great if TeamCity and VSTS had full builtin support for each other? Well yes, yes it would!
- Time to Vote for CodeStock 2018 Speakers – Mickey Gousset
I’ve never had the opportunity to attend or speak at CodeStock. I’m hoping to change that this year, and to do that I need your help.
- Global DevOps BootCamp 2017 – Jesse Houwing
Yesterday we had a blast. It’s the only way to describe it.
- Monitor TFS Search data Usage – Ricci Gian Maria

- Deploy to Azure from TFS using an Azure Resource Manager Service Endpoint – Ben Day
You need an Azure Resource Manager Service Endpoint and some values from Azure. There’s a link to a PowerShell script at the bottom of this post that’ll help. You’ll probably still need to read this blog post though.
- Generating workflow diagrams for TFS work items – Thomas Freudenberg
To document the workflow of our work items, I wanted to create perspicuous charts. However, if you’re a nerd like me, you don’t want to use PowerPoint or Visio to create high gloss charts. Instead I like to automate the creation of the charts.
