[#TFS2012] TFS + GIT, yes is already here, dudes!



24 hours, only 24 hours have passed since I wrote my post on the release of Update 2 for TFS2012 that would give support to GIT and already are references and questions from all sides. From a coworker who tells me that they are about to liquidate all your balance of internet via Github up some fellow high school of Argentina which asks me to:

What sorcho is that ?” GIT ?‘. ‘

Go to GIT soup now see even in the gin and tonics . So let’s see some points that can be used for the combo VS2012 + GIT +…. the supplier you choose ;)


  • What repository of ? Git do do you recommend?

If you are looking for a repository of Git where to keep your source code, GitHub is the best choice.

If want to have a collaborative environment, as Team Foundation Service is the best option to free up to 5 users, to more users you can evaluate CodePlex .

  • This is very much, your head hurts.

If you have inhaled more paint than you and your mind begins to rave with old episodes of Friends, sure you wonder: now TFS is a DVCS?

The answer is: not, melon! that TFS is a centralized system. What happens is that it would be stupid not to take advantage the benefits that brings a DVCS, so that a MIX of both forms of work has been done. Brian Harry explains it best here .

  • Is all this free?

If it’s free like the Sun in Sweden. Even it will be included in versions of TFS and Visual Studio Express.

  • From where do download me Update 2 CTP?

From here .

  • What can I find in the CTP 2 of Update 2?

For all this and more:

  1. Web-based Test Case Management
  2. Code Map Debugger Integration and Responsiveness Improvements
  3. TDD for Windows Phone Unit Tests
  4. Test Explorer group tests by Class
  5. Web based version control Explore and Compare
  6. Send work items in e-mail
  7. Email work items from backlogs
  8. Web version control Improvements
  9. New Team Explorer Connection dialog display multiple servers, PCTs and projects
  10. Advanced SharePoint 2010 Load Testing
  11. Team Foundation Server Work Item Tagging
  12. Extended cross browser support in Coded UI Testing
  13. Microsoft SharePoint 2013 support in Coded UI Testing
  14. Test Explorer test details improvements for Coded UI Tests
  15. Improvements in Windows Store Applications Unit Testing
  16. Test Explorer test playlists
  17. Symbol Loading improvements for IntelliTrace and Profiler
  18. While not technically part of Update 2: Git as version control on Team Foundation Service

Because you already have enough to play and read for all the weekend, isn’t it?
