  • Blog Post: Included CALs and Tiered Pricing

    I have to say that when I wrote my post last week on TFS and VSO related licensing and packaging changes, I didn’t think I’d be writing another one quite so soon. But I found out that we’re disclosing the next set of changes this week to help people plan, even though they don’t...
  • Blog Post: Self forming teams at scale

    I want to share with you all a strange thing that we do.  It’s unorthodox but has been very successful for us. Teams change.  People come.  People go.  People move around.  Reorgs happen.  This is a fact of life, particularly in any large organization, and something managers...
  • Blog Post: Visual Studio Online Update – July 17

    I told you a week or so ago it would come quickly :)  We’re deploying our Sprint 85 work now.  As always, it will take a few days for it to make it across the entirety of the service. You can find the details on the new capabilities in the release notes . I think you’ll be pleased to see a...
  • Blog Post: Visual Studio Online Update – July 7

    I’m a bit late on this post.  It’s been a busy week of travel. Last week we began deploying our sprint 84 release.  Because of the logistics around finalizing our TFS 2015 release, it was delayed a bit.  Sprint 83 is actually the last sprint that went into TFS 2015 RTM and we wanted to...
  • Blog Post: Team Explorer Everywhere 2015 RTM

    We have released Team Explorer Everywhere 2015. It’s available on the Download Center and on the Eclipse Marketplace. Soma announced that VS 2015 will release on July 20th so stay tuned. This isn’t a particularly big release but it has some very welcome enhancements: Support for...
  • Blog Post: Team Foundation Server and VS Online adoption at Microsoft

    Someone asked me in a blog comment recently to post an update on internal adoption – the last one was almost a year ago.  I’m going to keep it reasonably short. The best summary is adoption continues to grow.  TFS on-prem is growing slowly because it’s already huge.  VS Online usage is...
  • Blog Post: Visual Studio Online Update – June 3rd

    ***PLEASE READ*** Ahh, my fortune for “delayed publish” in Live Writer. I was trying to grab screenshots for this and accidentally hit publish a day too early. The release notes won’t be published until tomorrow (June 3rd). I’m sorry for the inconvenience but with the number of...
  • Blog Post: Visual Studio Online Update – May 15th

    This week we are deploying our sprint 82 work for VS Online.  This is a very BIG deployment – lot’s of stuff.  You can read the release notes . First and foremost Build.VNext is here!   It is now in Public Preview and everyone can try it.  We also now have a hosted build pool so you...
  • Blog Post: A fun project for customer connection

    Last week the VS Code team came to us saying that they really wanted a great experience getting bug reports from customers.  Microsoft Connect just isn’t a pleasant experience.  They looked at UserVoice and it’s great for suggestions but not optimized for bugs. We decided to pull a few people...
  • Blog Post: VS Online hosted in Australia

    Today, we are expanding our VS Online footprint to include an instance in Australia. This adds to the several instances we have in the US and the one we have in Europe. It is part of our drive to make VS Online available to everyone, in a geography you are comfortable with and with performance you are...
  • Blog Post: VS Online & Power BI

    I briefly described our new Power BI integration for VS Online in my //Build/ post last week.  I didn’t however provide any details on how to use it.  Jeff Levinson has written a very detailed walk through that explains many of the concepts and shows you how to get connected.  Check out...
  • Blog Post: Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server at Build 2015

    It’s conference season – //Build/ is this week and Ignite is next week. As you might expect, we have a TON of stuff to share so I’ll get right to it. Visual Studio & Team Foundation Server 2015 Release Candidate This week released the release candidates for both VS 2015 and...
  • Blog Post: VS Online Update – April 27th

    This week we are rolling out our Sprint 81 work.  3 instances have been updated so far and the remaining 3 will update over the next couple of days – so, as usual, you may not see the changes immediately. This update comes close on the heels of the last one.  We just finished the sprint 80...
  • Blog Post: Team Project Rename available on VS Online

    Today we enabled Team Project rename on all VS Online accounts.  Team Project rename is our #1 User Voice request, by far and the longest standing customer complaint. 6,156 votes and 178 comments later, it’s here (both on VSO – today and in the TFS 2015 RC – available shortly).  I know it’s...
  • Blog Post: TFVC & Git support

    I got a question on a blog post about differences in TFVC and Git support in TFS and VS Online.  Here’s a link to the question for context: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/bharry/archive/2015/03/12/the-future-of-team-foundation-version-control.aspx#10608301 I can’t answer in a comment with reasonable formatting...
  • Blog Post: VS Online Update - April 10th

    We are deploying our sprint 80 results this week. You can read the release notes on visualstudio.com. There are some very nice improvements for both the Agile tooling and Git. This is an unusual deployment. First it's delayed a week and second it's going to take a couple of weeks before all the...
  • Blog Post: Ever want to create bugs from email?

    Someone recently posted an open source copy of a popular internal tool called Mail2Bug. https://github.com/microsoft/mail2bug It will automatically create bugs from an email and then keep the bug up to date with any further conversation that happens on the email thread. It works for both VS Online...
  • Blog Post: The future of Team Foundation Version control

    I've written about this before but it keeps coming back. From time to time I get the question "Is TFVC dead?" I guess I have to just keep answering it. No, it is not. We added support for Git in TFS 2013 so that we'd support the best centralized version control system and the best dvcs in the industry...

    Yesterday we began our sprint 78 VS Online deployment.  You can check out the release notes here: http://www.visualstudio.com/news/2015-feb-18-vso .  there are a few nice improvements. It will likely take 4 or 5 days to upgrade all accounts so don’t be surprised if you don’t see the changes...
  • Blog Post: Code Search on VS Online

    In November, at our Connect(); event, I gave a sneak peek at a few features/services coming to VS Online, and ultimately Team Foundation Server. Among the things I demoed was a new source code search feature. I’m happy to say that the next step in that journey is upon us. Today, we announced a...

  • Blog Post: Licensing changes - User acceptance testing and Agile planning

    This is next in a series of licensing and feature changes that I laid out in December. With this, I think all of the cloud changes (and more) that I described have been made. Some of the on-prem changes will be available as we release more on-prem updates. User acceptance testing As of this week...
  • Blog Post: Hiring for VS Online and Team Foundation Server

    Microsoft has an extensive recruiting effort. But we recently decided to try something new to try to find more people who might want to help build VS Online and Team Foundation Server. We added a Jobs page to visualstudio.com. It has a little info on what we do and links to job postings on the Microsoft...
  • Blog Post: Journey to cloud

    Transforming a sizeable development organization from "classic" development practices to Agile cloud development is something I talk about a lot. Bhavik Shah, who used to work on our team, left Microsoft to go to business school and now works a Mckinsey, recently wrote an article on that transformation...
