Veni, vidi, expertus sum- I came, I saw, I tested

The CAT-5’s out of the Bag

I’m sure many of you have read Eric Sink‘s “Four Questions“. If you haven’t though, I highly recommend it. [Thanks due to Martin Woodward for linking to the post!]

Now that we’ve shipped version one of Team Foundation Server, we’ve started getting a lot more feedback. It’s great to see that so many people are interested in trying out the new toolset, and it’s helped us learn what the “real world” use scenarios are like. What I’ve seen so far is that we weren’t too far off on our core use test areas, though some of the complex combinations weren’t tested as thoroughly. There haven’t been any big surprises, which is a relief.

Still, life continues and we’re planning ahead regarding how we can make the product even better. I’m curious to know what your top pet peeves are with the current system, Version Control or otherwise. What can’t you do that you’d like to? What works differently than how you expected? What snags have you hit that impact productivity? Are there any other problems you’ve found? How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

And remember, there are 10 types of people in the world:

  1. Those who understand binary numbers.
  2. Those who don’t.

I’m inclined to believe these groups map pretty well onto Eric’s groups, but would be happy to hear arguments to the contrary.
