Congratulations to Bill and his team, for cooking up the latest version of the Branching Guidance, which will once again prove to be an invaluable reference to Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server and other development, version control and branching environments.

Project Description

The purpose of this project is to build some insightful and practical guidance around branching and merging with Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010. The new release focuses on Hands on Labs and includes lots of lessons learnt from the community Q&A.

The 2010 release includes discussions around branching concepts and strategies but also focuses on practical hands-on labs.
