    Must Buy Book: Professional Application Lifecycle Management with Visual Studio 2010

    A few months ago I purchased this book:  Professional Application Lifecycle Management with Visual Studio 2010 to learn more about Visual Studio 2010 and Team Foundation Server 2010 in order to get a good understanding of the upcoming TFS and PS integration feature pack, and I finally finished reading the book, and must say it’s a great read if you are not familiar with VS nor TFS 2010. I had not read a book about VS since a long time and really enjoyed this book; the writing style and obviously the expertise and professionalism of the writers in particular Brian Keller (a familiar name in the TFS world!) made it a great read. I learned a lot about VS and TFS and how the 2010 release addresses the typically software development lifecycle customers and partners faces everyday. It ‘s great to see major improvement in productivity in this latest VS release. If you develop .NET software and are not using this latest VS stack from you are missing out big time! The only chapter missing in the book is one one the TFS and Project Server Integration Feature pack, but can’t blame the authors since it has not shipping yet! (stay tune for more info. on that topic soon, in the meantime check this:
