More Getting Started content for VSTS

In my post:

92 Tutorial Video’s on Visual Studio Team System 2008 (Getting Started)

I listed a bunch of getting started content but it looks like i missed one or two.

For 2010 the updated walkthroughs are THE reference:

Updated CTP VSTS Walkthroughs

For 2008 another great source of information is the

Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 Training Kit

Which includes the following modules: 

  1. Check-in Policies for Process Enforcement.doc
  2. Code Analysis.doc
  3. Code Metrics and Profiling.doc
  4. Creating and Executing Unit Tests.doc
  5. Process Governance with VSTS.doc
  6. Test Processes.doc
  7. Top Down Design.doc


And all the source code in a zip file called: VSTSALMDemos.zip


Installing Source Code

To install the source code necessary for the demonstrations, please follow these steps:

1. From the VSTS ALM course materials provided, locate the VSTSALMDemos.zip file.

2. Extract the .zip file to a directory on the machine. For purposes of these demos, the directory is assumed to be C:\VSTSALMDemos

Two subdirectories are created under the C:\VSTSALMDemos directory. One directory, named. Working, is for code that may be modified during the demonstration. The other directory, Backup, is marked read only and is designed so backup files may be copied to the working directory if necessary.
