Around Beta1 of TFS V1 we created a “sample” to demonstrate how to connect TFS to Project Server and synchronize task information. It was a pretty basic sample and required a lot of work to turn it into a solution. Further, as TFS evolved through the rest of the V1 cycle we didn’t keep the sample up to date – yielding even more work to make a useful solution out of it.
I’m pleased to announce that Avenade has taken that original sample, updated it to work the TFS RTM and embellished upon it to make it more of a complete solution. They have just posted the updated code on GotDotNet. In addition they are offering it and a bunch of services around it as part of their lifecycle consulting engagements.
We from a lot of customers that there’s a strong desire to be able to synchronize these two key information stores and it’s great to have a solution that’s available now.
Here’s a high level architectural picture of how the connector works…
