Need VSTS/TFS Help? How Do I…?


I can’t tell you how many times I’ve searched for information about how to do something, only to find it AFTER spending hours doing it by trial-and-error. Hopefully, I can save you some time the next time you need to figure out how to do something in Team System. Recently, I found an awesome link to a series of “How Do I?” videos on MSDN that answer many of these questions, such as:



  • Automate Team Foundation Build 2008

  • Easily Bind Data to .NET Unit Tests

  • Use the Visual Studio Team System Test Load Agent

  • Add Conditions to Web Tests to Determine If Web Pages are Returning What You Expect?

  • Create a Data-Bound Web Test

  • Use the Class Designer in Visual Studio

  • Use the Data Generation Wizard to Create a Data-bound Data Generation Plan

  • And MUCH, MUCH more! (Yes, I watched too much TV as a kid! Probably still do…)

Here’s an additional “How Do I?” series for Team Foundation. This one covers some basic stuff, like creating and managing work items, and creating reports, etc…
