Channel 9 video: Project management with TFS

Brian Keller stopped by my office recently and we chatted for a while about how we manage our projects using TFS.  Since we hear a lot from customers that are curious about how we dogfood our product we decided to post the recording on Channel 9.  Take a look:


PS - I'm going to talk with Brian...I think his camera's broken.  His recording makes it look like my hair is thinning on top and that's certainly not possible!  🙂

  1. Really great video!  Been interested in how this is done for quite a while and glad we have the chance to see it in live action.  Curious how the reports were done for sure!

    Definitely would like to see that kind of visibility in our projects as well.

    Thanks again some transparency!

    Thanks for giving us some insight into how Microsoft handles software project, it’s very interesting to get the view from the people that have had the most time and experience with the product.

    Thanks again for the video, keep them comming 🙂

  7. John –

    Thanks for your feedback.  Some of this functionality is available using VSTS 2008.   You can see examples of that here (  The status roll up and hierarchical work items features I showed are newly supported in Rosario and are difficult to achieve with VSTS 2008.
