August 11 TFS Power Tools Released
The August ‘11 TFS Power Tools are ready for download. Brian Harry has a good summary of the update here. The big visible changes are: 1. The ability to use the shell extensions against a TFS not on the same domain as your PC. You now get a credentials prompt. 2. Work Item Search!! The Work Item Tracking toolbar now contains a search box. I know my friend and fellow MVP Etienne Tremblay has been asking for this for about 5 years! 3. Rollback IN THE UI!!

Simplified Disaster Recovery for TFS 2010
Microsoft just announced new Power Tool for TFS 2010 which greatly simplifies setting up backups and performing restores. Can’t wait for this new release. Brian Harry shares all the details on his blog post so I won’t get into all the details here. I will say, however, that this is another GREAT step from the TFS team at Microsoft to simplify the administration and maintenance. The barriers to adoption just keep getting knocked down. (UPDATE) Brian’s new post indicates that this Power Tool also manages ......

This is NOT another goodbye 2009 or 2000’s blog post
I’m really not one to reflect. I prefer to live in the present and consider the future. As such, rather than saying goodbye to 2009 I’m saying Hello to 2010.

I’m looking forward to embracing Lean Software Engineering practices. I’m starting 2010 by attending a Kanban Coaching Workshop in Feb. I’ve been spending some time reading ......

TechDays Winnipeg - Brrrr
Today is TechDays in Winnipeg. Today I’m doing a session on upgrading to TFS 2010 and new features in VS 2010. Tomorrow I’m doing a session on Configuration Management with TFS. I’m looking forward to presenting in Winnipeg again. Just a suggestion to MS organizers though. Perhaps October might have been a better time to do Winnipeg… Yes, that does say ‘Feels Like’ –37C. The sad thing is that it’s warmer today than it has been in about a week. Technorati Tags: TechDays,TFS 2010,TFS ......

Invited to present at MS TFS All Hands meeting
While in Redmond last week I was invited to attend and present at the TFS All Hands meeting. What a lot of brain power in one place (actually 2 places; North Carolina and Redmond.) I guess they usually try to get a customer share their real world experience with the product with the development team. I was given the opportunity to discuss some of what we see as the Hits for TFS 2010, what we still see as gaps and to do a demonstration of the Telerik Work Item Manager and Project Dashboard that Imaginet ......

TFS Team Project Collections
Brian Harry is continuing his series on new VSTS 2010 features. His latest entry deals with some restructuring of the Team Foundation Server and specifically the way projects are stored. Team Project Collections are a new concept in TFS 2010. They represent a set of projects that are managed together. Each TPC has it’s own set of databases. This enables TPC’s to be backed up, restored or migrated independently of other TPC’s on the same logical or physical TFS implementation. This is particularly ......
