Brian Harry and Jeff Hadfield discuss the new features of Team Foundation Service.

From the keynote stage at Microsoft’s TechEd North America today, I announced a few items that I think CodeProject readers will be interested in learning about, so I thought I’d share them here and invite any questions you may have.

We talked today about our next IDE, Microsoft Visual Studio 2013, and updates to Team Foundation Service (, including many of the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) features to be included in Microsoft’s next set of developer tools. As part of my presentation, I demoed several new features and capabilities of Visual Studio 2013 and Team Foundation Server / Service. We have enabled some of those Team Foundation Service features for you to try out immediately, and I also mentioned that a preview of Visual Studio 2013 will be available at the BUILD conference later this month.

As usual, there’s a lot of stuff to talk about, and I’ve described many new features in greater detail on my blog. Here are the main buckets that many of the new features fall in:

  • Coding Productivity
  • Improving Collaboration Across the Development Team
  • Agile Portfolio Management
  • Version Control
  • Release Management

Later today, at 5:15 p.m. Central Time, I’ll be speaking with CodeProject’s Jeff Hadfield and he’ll be recoding our conversation to post here in the near future. If you have any questions about today’s announcements after reading my blog post come back to this page and ask your questions in the forum below. Jeff and I will do our best to address them in forthcoming CodeProject content, most likely a podcast.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll write in my blog about more new things that are coming in Visual Studio 2013, but I’m also receptive to posting those things here at CodeProject if you’d be interested.

Please share with us what you think and stay tuned for more.
