Support for on-premise Team Foundation Server 2012 should come with the first update post-RTM.

 

Here is a video about this new feature:

 

 

Kanban Overview

For those not familiar with Kanban, which was originally created for manufacturing, you can go here for a general overview:

As for Kanban and software development, I personally like this session from TechEd 2011:

  • Tfs board looks like a very nice feature, yet to unveil the full potential of kanban process in TFS I would suggest using 3rd party tools like Eylean or UrbanTurtle as they offer rich functionality over great UI, well Eylean especially is a fancy one.

    Both are able of syncing items from TFS and showing them on rich UI task board.

  • I am using and implemented Kanban board provided by ALM ranger (MS) in my project recently. It is pretty good template with customization as an option to suit everyone need  . Team is happy with CFD, dashboard, report etc.
