Are you planning on upgrading your Visual Studio Team Foundation Server? Have you lingered on an older version of TFS?

November 13, 2015 | By | No Comments

Those who have stayed on an older version of TFS many times have the greatest challenges. Good news! There are direct upgrade paths from TFS 2010 SP1 and up, and system requirements haven’t changed from TFS 2013. This means TFS 2015 could support the same SQL Server versions as well as support the same operating systems of your current TFS 2013 instance. Why such a slow …

Building ASP .NET 5 Applications on Linux with TFS 2015, Part 1: TFS setup

August 13, 2015 | By | No Comments

I recently left my Windows-centric comfort zone a bit and took a journey into Linux-land to see how I could get an ASP .NET 5 application building on a Linux machine. This was a surprisingly tricky process, so I figured I would blog about what I did so that other people could get up and running easily. This involves some set up on the TFS side, …

May 29, 2015 | By | No Comments

If you’ve talked to me about TFS at all in the past 6 months, I’ve probably talked your ear off about “Build vNext” or “Build Preview”, the new cross-platform, cross-technology build system coming in TFS 2015 that’s going to totally replace the awkward, hard-to-modify XAML build system that we’ve had since TFS 2010. If you’re a Visual Studio Online user, you may have noticed a “Build …

Calculating return on investment of software development – 3/3 Value and Conclusion (for now)

April 30, 2015 | By | No Comments

“Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future” Niels Bohr I like the analogy of the lottery ticket (heard at an Agile user group, just don’t remember who said it, sorry), you know the cost of the ticket, you just don’t know how much it will pay, if anything.
