  • Blog Post: Team Foundation Service Updates 7/16

    This sprint is the smallest service change in a while.  It was the last sprint for really wrapping up our TFS 11 on-premises work so most of our effort went into that.  I’m expecting that we’ll see a significant increase in new service capabilities over the next couple of months. So, for the...

  • Blog Post: Team Foundation Service Preview is public!
