What is a Team Project?

I have now installed and used TFS at a number of clients.  On every installation the very first question asked has alway been, what is a project?  This question seems to provoke a solid hour of conversation about organization structure and development practices.  No doubt every shop will always be different, regardless you will still…

TFS Release Candidate Upgrade and Install, Completed!

All I can say is WOW WOW WOW!  I am very impressed and very stoked!  I have successfully completed one dual server install and upgraded a very active, multi-project single server installation.  Each took about 3 or 4 hours, where most of the time sucked up backing up and copying db files and ISO images around. …
