Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio Online in mixed development environments

Application and infrastructure are never as architecturally pure or simple as we would like. You can’t always rely on working in your language of choice. With this in mind we’re going to take a look at how TFS can help you with this whether you work with Java, .net or something else.

We’ll cover a number of topics including:

  • source control
  • build
  • testing
  • deployment

This talk will be aimed at developer though it shouldn’t matter what technology is being used.

Release Management with Team Foundation Server 2013 

With the shortening of delivery cycles; adoption of agile; and a focus on continuous delivery; there is a growing need to deploy application faster and more reliably. Microsoft Release Management with TFS 2013 is a new entry in this space complementing Microsoft’s existing Application Lifecycle Management offerings. This is a semi-technical demo, so it should be of interest anyone who’s involved in the release process specifically on the Windows Server Platform.

See how Release Management can:

  • Help provide faster and more consistent deployments.
  • Automate verification of deployments.Allow Single click promotion to different environments.
  • Secure releases with workflow approval release authorisation.
  • Integrate with your existing test and build processes
