Aggregate Completed and Estimated Work in Team Foundation Server User Stories using Excel

Aggregate Completed and Estimated Work in Team Foundation Server User Stories using Excel | Visual Studio ALM | Scoop.it
Gian Maria Ricci's insight:

If you use the Agile process template, you have three columns related to planning and tracking task duration, they are called:

Original EstimateCompleted WorkRemaining Work

The only problem is that TFS only aggregates the Remaining Work in the agile boards, as you can see in Figure 1:

A Wiki preview on VSTS

The preview is on by default for all accounts.  You will see it in all of your projects.  The account administrator can disable the preview using the “Preview features” menu under their user profile if they don’t want it.
Gian Maria Ricci's insight:
Wiki is a really important tool to manage a project and now VSTS has a preview of a Wiki completely integrated into the product. This will replace the old extension in the marketplace, and will have a better support cause it is now an official and core part of the product.

Perf results on scaling Git on VSTS with GVFS

A little over a month ago, I gave an update on our progress of moving the Windows team to Git in the largest Git repo on the planet. At the time, I described the scale of the Windows Git repo (over 3.5M files and ~4,000 engineers), the current performance results and set of improvements that were just rolling out that we called “O(modified)”. The O(modified) improvements significantly improve performance by changing many Git commands to be time proportional to the set of files you’ve changed rather than the set you’ve checked out.

TFS 2017 Update 2 RC1 is now available

Yesterday, we released the first release candidate for TFS 2017 Update 2 (TFS 2017.2).  This is a “go-live” release and is ready to be used in production environments.  We’ve already installed it on 2 of our ~50 production TFS servers and it’s looking solid.

The largest Git repo on the planet

It’s been 3 months since I first wrote about our efforts to scale Git to extremely large projects and teams with an effort we called “Git Virtual File System”.  As a reminder, GVFS, together with a set of enhancements to Git, enables Git to scale to VERY large repos by virtualizing both the .git folder and the working directory.  Rather than download the entire repo and checkout all the files, it dynamically downloads only the portions you need based on what you use.

Evolving TFS/Team Services build automation capabilities

Because the two models are so different, we have supported both in parallel to allow customers to continue to work (and even upgrade to new version of TFS) without interruption. By supporting both, in parallel, people have time to try out the new version, learn it and, where appropriate, adopt/migrate to it. We feel (and evidence based on usage shift) that the new build system is in good shape and ready for broad adoption.
