    TFSBuild.com: Build "recipes"

    • 1 Comments

    Grant Holliday has set up a great site for Team Build users to be able to contribute and find "recipes" to use in their builds.  Check it out!

    TFSBuild.com Build Recipes Launched

    Filed under: TFSBuild.com, Team Foundation Server — Grant Holliday @ 6:32 pm

    I’ve been thinking for a while that there’s not a lot of guidance out there on how to get Visual Studio Team Foundation Build (aka Team Build) doing more than just a compile.

    My first crazy thought was that I should write a book - then I got scared when I mapped out the chapters and realised how much effort would be required and the time-to-market. I’ll leave that all to somebody else.

    Instead, I registered the domain TFSBuild.com and setup the .NET ScrewTurn wiki. Here’s the introduction from the homepage:

    As a Build Master you’ve been put in charge of coming up with a central build system for your team. It can be quite daunting at first and you wonder “Where do I start?”.

    The purpose of TFSBuild.com is to create and share build recipes with other build masters so that we can all learn and benefit from each other’s experience.

    Since the site is called TFSBuild.com, there is a particular focus on MSBuild and Team Foundation Build scripts. But if you have a NAnt script or similar that you think others might find useful post it up.

    The site is published as a wiki and the idea is that anybody can register to add & update content.

    TSWA: Hakan now has a blog

    • 2 Comments

    Hakan Eskici is the program manager for Team System Web Access.  He's now blogging, and his first post provides some history on how TeamPlain became TSWA.

    A little bit about myself and Web Access

    Some of you might already know that I'm the Program Manager on the Web Access team in Team Foundation Server product group.

    In March 2007, Microsoft acquired the company I had founded with Ahmet Akkas back in 2001. Ahmet, Serkan (one of our senior developers) and I, along with our families, moved to beautiful North Carolina in June 2007 and started to work in Microsoft's Raleigh office.

    The story starts in 2001, when my old time friend Ahmet Akkas and I had decided to start a software company in Izmir, Turkey. Our company was called devBiz.
