    Timestamps and the Team Foundation Server

    • 0 Comments

    I was recently asked about how date/time stamps are stored in the TFS.  The concern was centered around distributed development that crosses timezones.  If someone in the UK checks in a piece of code to a server in California, how will the stamp be preserved so that a California user knows precisely when the code was modified?

    Well, timestamps are stored in UTC (GMT).  The client (VS or command line, or whatever) converts the UTC time to local time for display.  This allows centrally-stored timestamps to be displayed in a manner most consistent with the requesting client's locale.

    I now have a month under my belt at Microsoft as a Technical Specialist for Team System.  For those of you wondering about the substance behind the buzz of VSTS, believe me it's there.  Microsoft is taking a bold new step into the SDLC world with a new enterprise-level source control system, work item tracking & collaboration, and testing (Yes, there's now testing!).

    Stay tuned!
