TFS11 on Azure January 2012 update – request feedback

The latest update on TFS ( see: Team Foundation Service Planned Maintenance Tues Jan 17th ), fixed an issue with builds, they look stable again. And my Azure build service executes them happy. Now its time to expand this scenario with test controllers and test agents for automatic test execution and test environment provisioning.   But, I want to point to the new menu item ‘request feedback’ … it is the feature for getting early feedback about your product, for example during the sprint review. It is a really nice feature supported with a tool similar as the Test Professional, Test Runner.    More explained with a walkthrough for the dev preview can be found in... [More]

Build Service on Azure connected with Hosted TFS Service on Azure.

Just because it is possible… and that it feels as a good solution. I created an Azure VM Role with a build service (VS11 CTP), configured against the Hosted TFS service.

For example when your team only exists of distributed team members with no central server it now can use the TFS service environment with a build without having to know where it lives. It just feels strange when you’re using a cloud based solution and you still have to install something on premise on a server.
