I read this book in one week, and it’s really interesting.
This is not a book of classic TFS, its cookbook approach makes it different from others.
This treats almost every theme TFS but also on key topics of DevOps as cotinuous delivery on TFS 2015, but most also applies to VSTS.
The topics addressed are presented in the order of using TFS:
Beginning with the creation of a project team, the management of source code for TFVC and Git.
Then he addresses topics within builds, tests and Release using the latest version of Release which is integrated with TFS (then Update 2 RC1 or VSTS)
Finally the last themes are managing the TFS and TFS extension part with APIs and customization of work item form.
All subjects in the form of cookbooks respond to real issues encountered daily when using or administering TFS.
This book is therefore aimed both to administrators, developers, or even at Ops.
I recommend you buy it, read it and practice each of these cases.
One of the major announcements during the Connect() event Visual Studio 2015 is the Visual Studio Marketplace that will enable the provision of extensions for Visual Studio Team Services (renamed Visual Studio Online).
For VSTS, Visual Studio Marketplace will allow the user to view and install an extension that will fit into the VSTS platform.
For the time extensions are only available for VSTS, for TFS On-premise is scheduled for update 2 or 3.
How to access to the Marketplace
Marketplace is accessible directly via VSTS account
Le but du TFS proxy est de mettre en cache les fichiers du contrôleur de sources. Un TFS proxy peut être très utiles pour palier à un problème de bande passante pour des équipes distantes du serveur TFS.
Pour que les Builds de TFS récuperent le code sources non pas du serveur TFS mais du cache du TFS proxy (celle ci étant plus récente le temps de la synchronisation) il faut modifier des clés de la base de registre.
