Loved this book. Really helpful and clear. It was great to read something that made the vision/future of build, lab, and release make sense. Microsoft has been a little vague over the last year or so and plans for the on-prem versions of those products was tough to figure out. Tarun Arora tied it together nicely.
In this book, Tarun covers every area of TFS from source control management, work item management, testing, and build/release automation to administration. I enjoyed this book because Tarun goes beyond the basics of TFS 2015, digging into advanced topics such as extended TFS with the TFS Object Model and REST API. Tarun also covers more advanced TFS administration (i.e., analyzing and configuring the database-level test retention policies, managing CodeLens, and analyzing log files for diagnose common issues).As a long-time TFS user, having performed countless upgrades from all versions, including Visual Source Safe, I still found hidden gems in this book. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on automated testing integration and build/release vNext. I highly recommend this book to anyone that administers, manages, supports, or uses TFS on a regular basis.
I read this book in one week, and it's really interesting.This is not a book of classic TFS, its cookbook approach makes it different from others.This treats almost every theme TFS but also on key topics of DevOps as cotinuous delivery on TFS 2015, but most also applies to VSTS.The topics addressed are presented in the order of using TFS:Beginning with the creation of a project team, the management of source code for TFVC and Git.Then he addresses topics within builds, tests and Release using the latest version of Release which is integrated with TFS (then Update 2 RC1 or VSTS)Finally the last themes are managing the TFS and TFS extension part with APIs and customization of work item form.All subjects in the form of cookbooks respond to real issues encountered daily when using or administering TFS.This book is therefore aimed both to administrators, developers, or even at Ops.I recommend you buy it, read it and practice each of these cases.
This is a great book for people who want to introduce DevOps practices into their daily work, but don't have much time to dig all the details of how to do it; with the recipes delivered on this book you can quickly start using TFS/VSTS ranging from how to setup a team project, managing source code repositories, tracking work and building , deploying and testing your apps all in an integrated and cohesive manner.If you want to go beyond it will also help in managing TFS and extending it to integrate with other toolsLet's be clear this is not a reference book or a tutorial, but a great practical how to; even if you are new to TFS/VSTS you can use this book to learn in a practical how to get most of TFS/VSTS and how you can managed your process with it end to end.
