Microsoft has been very generous with all the free stuff they are giving to the developer community and among that is a free source control  (tfs ). It is free for 5 developers and is a very little after that. if you are small business and a single developer like me who works on random projects then this is the best solution (in my mind) for all of us (visual studio developers).

Just register at https://tfs.visualstudio.com/ and can start your source control in seconds.

Things you can do :

  • Create your projects, check in your code directly from your VS 2010 or VS 2012 (I am using 2012 now)
  • Create a project with a scrum pattern or an agile pattern,
  • can create product back log, and track the breakdown, track velocity and even add people to the project and make it secure by not inviting others.
  • track checkins from multiple people from the team, track their progress thru SBI’s. etc
  • and many more

Please take a moment to check out this and share your experiences.

An App on windows phone and surface (work online and offline) would be awesome to have.

I know the online tfs has been in the market for long time but I wanted to share my experiences.

You say "and a very little after that" when discussing the 5 developer limit. How can you say that when Microsoft have not revealed any details of the costs, simply that they will do so at some point this year? Microsoft have a history of hooking people in and then raising costs considerably (have you seen the cost of ,8sual Studio Premium vs Pro which is needed for the Scrum bits? And if you want IntelliTrace you have to pay the earth. For source control there are plenty of genuinely free alternatives that don't have a hidden "we'll tell you later" cost.

I can’t imagine focusing long enough to research; much less write this kind of article. You’ve outdone yourself with this material. This is great content. create a blog using google
