I receive a lot of email each week from you asking very specific, and valuable questions. It’s my hope that a newsletter like this will help me communicate important announcements, tips/tricks, and other items to help you and your team ultimately be more successful!
Yep, I’ve added virtual office hours to my plate in an effort to get your questions answered! I’m holding them for an hour every 2-3 weeks – I hope you stop by sometime! My next office hours are next Friday, 11/18 at 9:30am Pacific.
If you’re using using Visual Studio 2010 and TFS 2010 (and possibly Test Professional 2010), you may want to download and take advantage of the “Visual Studio 2010 SP1 TFS Compatibility GDR” update, now available. It contains several fixes, and even the addition of a highly-requested feature in MTM (multi-line test steps)!
The OData Service for Team Foundation Server 2010 is not officially released! Brian Keller has more here.
If you’ve been playing with the VS 2010 virtual machine with labs and sample data, it’s been refreshed with a new expiration date. Again, see BrianKel’s blog for details.
Did you know you can “fake” a TFS build? This is useful if you don’t actually use TFS as a build system, but still need build numbers to load into TFS to help associate items together (i.e. changes between “builds” for testing purposes).
Want to get access to TFS Preview but don’t have an invite code? Ping me, let’s talk.
Are you going to the ALM Summit next week in Redmond? I am, and I hope to see you there!

Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?
