There was an interesting discussion on Agile vs Scrum Template for TFS 2012 on LinkedIn that I was interested in however LinkedIn has a bug and will not let me comment on that open group. So I will add my answer here.
With the release of Team Foundation Server 2015 CTP you should be starting to plan your upgrade strategy. It’s going to be a tough one but you should get ready to upgrade to TFS 2015 now. Mainstream support for TFS 2010 ends on 14/07/2015. If you have been looking enviously at the new features popping […]
I just got a question on Teams without areas using Team Field in TFS and I decided that it warranted a bigger answer. The question was around creating nested teams and how to achieve it. Now, this applies to both Visual Studio Online and Team Foundation Server if you are using area path, and only TFS if you are using Team Field.
After upgrading to TFS 2013.3 you get some reports of errors in MTM from your users. Specifically they get a “Could not find mappings for all states defined in ‘Test Suit’ work item type” error when connecting.

I have been onsite in Athens for the last month to do a migration from StarTeam to TFS. We did an install of TFS 2013.3 with SharePoint 2013 on Windows Server 2012 R2 Update 1.

Have you ever created a bunch of work items that you decided later that you had to delete. Well I have… especially as a user of the TFS Integration Platform. And when things go wrong there they can really go wrong. Now while you can put stuff into the “removed” state it is still hanging […]
Have you ever tried to push data into TFS with Excel? I have, and it can often be the opposite of sweetness and light. The idea is to import data into TFS with Excel with history.
About 6 months ago I was approached by Mickey to help him on the third edition of Professional Application Lifecycle Management with Visual Studio 2013. I jumped at the chance, only to be in dismay at the amount of work, and now relieved that it is all over.
With the launch at Build of Team Foundation Server 2013 Update 2 I wanted to make sure that the update goes seamlessly. So I am upgrading my demo box to both Windows Server 2012 R2 Update 1 and Team Foundation Server 2013 Update 2. Recently the TFS updates have become so run of the mill […]
