  • Blog Post: Manual testing in the browser

    In my Update 1 preview post 6 weeks ago, I described a new capability enabling test case management and manual testing from within a browser, rather than having to install Test Professional on the target machine.  Unfortunately, we had to make the decision a couple of weeks ago to pull that from...

  • 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 Services Updates 6/26

    Well, the last 3 weeks were busy. We announced our Azure Continuous Deployment support and removed the invitation codes to open the service up to everyone. As I wrote in my Spring wrap up post , we’ve kind of emptied the pipeline of all of the big stuff we’ve had in progress. So this sprint...

  • Blog Post: Spring is over

    OK, so maybe I didn’t need to tell you that.  Or maybe, you observe that it isn’t quite true because summer officially starts in about a week.  But then that’s not really what I mean. I’ve written little tidbits about our transition from an organization shipping a box product every couple of...
  • Blog Post: Team Foundation Service Preview is public!

    Since we announced the Team Foundation Service Preview at the BUILD conference last year, we’ve limited the onboarding of new customers by requiring invitation codes to create accounts. The main reason for this has been to control the growth of the service to make sure it didn’t run away...
  • Blog Post: TeamDevCentral and hosted Lab Management

  • Blog Post: A Team Foundation Service Invitation Code

    I've seen a spike in requests for invitation codes following our announcement of the new TFS/Azure Continuous Delivery work at Azure Day this week.
