Migrating Team Projects between Team Foundation Servers

I am looking at the steps necessary to move projects between two Team Foundation Servers where both servers have existing projects setup. The lack of information on how to do this on the Internet and forums indicates that this is not something that is easy to accomplish. We have selected the server which we have customized as the target machine and luckily the other server has a default installation of TFS on it so we […] Read more »

TeamPlain and how I would like it to integrate with Team Foundation Server

I got a question from one of my many readers 😉 wondering why I didn’t think that TeamPlain was right for me. Since this is a topic that I was planning on writing about I put together a list of my gripes!

Windows SharePoint Services v3

WSS3 seems like a great upgrade from version 2. The whole programming model is becoming more in line with other programming models that Microsoft have. You can create custom event handlers for WSS3 relatively easily linking directly to the SP API to create new lists or manipulate existing data, customing metadata and list behavior seems really simple too. One addition that I haven’t seen demoed but that is possible now is creating WebParts and custom […] Read more »

First day at TechEd

My first day at TechEd is over, it actually feels like two days now that I think about it which is kinda weird. I managed to sneak into the Super Early Bird priority seating for the Keynote, well I really didn’t do much sneaking I just walked over and sat down but still… I am always amazed by the way Microsoft tries to sell their products to developers who are already convinced that Microsoft is […] Read more »
