During Whidbey Beta 1 we built a web application for reporting the division release criteria called DDMetrics. This tool served its purpose for Beta 1 and Beta 2. Now... it is time to take it to the next level and start using an incredibly awesome tool built by the Team Foundation Server team (dogfooding)!
Starting this week we will be using “Team Foundation Server work item tracking” for reporting on our Whidbey RTM release criteria. I just wanted to take the opportunity to say the more time I spend in Team Foundation Server the more excited I get about the awesome features/tools that we are building everyday in the Developer Division. We are very fortunate that we have such a great opportunity to thank the VSTF team by getting some real time usage.
Just some of the TFS Capabilities…
Users of DDMetrics during the previous milestones are going to be thrilled when they see the capabilities in Team Foundation Server... below I will just name a few that I think are very cool:
The Team Foundation Server team is working hard refreshing their Dogfood servers. Once that completes I will be sending out instructions to the necessary folks for how to access the DDMetrics RTM project.
