Microsoft has officially launched the TFS Azure service preview also known as TFS in the cloud. I am sure not all of us would be upgrading our base machines by installing Visual Studio 2011 which is still in preview to work with TFS Azure. The good news is that it is possible to work with TFS Azure using Visual Studio 2010. In this blog post, I’ll be showing you how to set up a developer machine with Visual Studio 2010 and connecting to TFS Azure.
