Taming TFS

By eidias on (tags: tfs, categories: infrastructure)

TFS is a useful tool but making it work just the way you want may not be as straightforward as expected. This series of blog posts will describe the journey I went through to adjust tfs to our needs.

I’ll focus mainly on adjusting the default build template to include things like automatic deployment of web and click once applications. I’ll also write about activities that need to performed on the build server so that everything plays nice. I’ll describe automatic assembly versioning, strong naming and signing. It took me quite a while to get there, so I hope that by posting these articles I will help you to save some time on it.

Join the trip.
