In my former life as an architect at Intel Corporation and a Microsoft MVP, I used to blog on the Intel Software Network about Microsoft Developer technologies.

On April 6th 2009 I wrote a blog post discussing the need for a Team Foundation Server Express Edition (original blog post) and provided a link to Microsoft Connect Feedback Item 430891 so that others could vote on the idea.

Brian Harry, Technical Fellow TFS, recently announced that with TFS “11” we’ll be introducing a new version of TFS, called Team Foundation Server Express, that includes the core developer features:

  • Source Code Control
  • Work Item Tracking
  • Build Automation
  • Agile Taskboard
  • and more…

I definitely agree with Brian that the best news is that it’s FREE for individuals and teams of up to 5 users. Read more about Team Foundation Server “11” Express in Brian Harry’s blog post entitled Coming Soon: TFS Express
