I am pleased to report that we have just published a whitepaper I wrote which details how the Visual Studio Team System Rangers* team worked with Infosys to integrate Team Foundation Server with their in-house project management system. By integrating the two systems they can allow their project managers using their internal project management system to work seamlessly with the development team who is using Team Foundation Server. Updates between the two systems happen automatically as a result of the integration work.
While we have talked about Infosys's adoption of Team Foundation Server in the past with a case study, this whitepaper delves into the details of that implementation and is a suggested read for anybody pursuing such integration with Team Foundation Server.
*The Visual Studio Team System Rangers are part of Jeff Beehler's team. In addition to being a team of highly-skilled consultants who specialize in Visual Studio Team System, they have the added advantage of working for the product group. This puts them on the cutting edge of solution development, and oftentimes the work they do to extend or customers Visual Studio Team System ends up laying the groundwork for features which ultimately find their way into the official product. Jeff has blogged about just a few of the many projects the Rangers have undertaken.
This week is Visual Studio Team System 2010 Week on Channel 9!
Every day this week we will be posting a new batch of Channel 9 videos which highlight various scenarios being enabled by Visual Studio Team System 2010. Bookmark this post which will be updated with links to each day's videos as they come online.
“Humanized Screencasts” The format used for the majority of these Channel 9 videos is one I’m calling “humanized screencasts” (see an example here). Beth Massi pioneered this approach on Channel 9 which blends live-action video with desktop screen captures. The result is a video which maintains the edgy, casual format of traditional Channel 9 interviews with the high-quality screen capture approach of a screencast.
Visual Studio Topic Area (http://channel9.msdn.com/VisualStudio/) NEW! This week we also launched a new Visual Studio “topic area” on Channel 9 for keeping up with all of the latest Visual Studio and .NET Framework Channel 9 content. This topic area will be maintained by myself, Drew Robbins, Jonathan Carter, Jason Olson and Dan Fernandez to provide a “one stop shop” for Niners to catch up on Visual Studio and .NET Framework content being posted to Channel 9 and elsewhere in the community.
