  • Can you share the status of the Team Project Guidance guide? I know there is a document from VS2005 days however I was hoping there may be something more up-to-date on how we should structure our projects to make the most of ALM.

    Thanks

  • Are you referring to the p&p Team Development with Visual Studio Team Foundation Server book? If yes, there is no update yet. However, the new Team Foundation Server Planning Guide (vsarplanningguide.codeplex.com) covers team project collection, tem project and teams planning.
