A treasure map for TFS and Visual Studio Quick Reference Posters from the Rangers

"The drawing shows me at one glance what might be spread over ten pages in a book" … voiced by a character in Ivan S. Turgenev's novel Fathers and Sons, 1862.

I definitely support this statement and therefore many of the Visual Studio ALM Rangers solutions are complemented with quick reference posters as summarised below:

TFS Integration Platform Migration Guidance
Migration Planning
TFS 2010 Branching Guidance Scenarios
2010 Features
Branching Diagrams
Visual Studio 2010 Quick Reference Guidance


  • Visual Studio 2010 Editions

Basic Guidance

  • Visual Studio 2010 Feature Sheets

  • TFS 2010 Roles and Security

You can find more quick reference posters on the SAArchitect community site under Value Add Information. If there are other quick reference poster treasure islands, please add a comment to this post, so that we can update the list.

    Please double-check your links.  Some seem to be wrong: 2010 Features has the same link as Scenarios, and SAArchitect is incorrectly linked.  Thanks for the great post, anyway, though!  🙂

  2. Thanks for the catch Ryan. I fixed the SAArchitect link and included a bread crumb to the value add information. The Features and Scenarios should be the same link, which points to a zip file that contains both posters. If you are looking at the Visio source document, you will notice two tabs, one Scenarios and the other Features.

    do you have a similar map for TFS 2012?

  4. @Maien, have a look at http://aka.ms/vsarsolutions which summarises the latest and greatest material. The TFS Planning and DR Avoidance Guide has newer versions of some of the above illustrations for TFS 2012 and 2013. The Visual Studio Quick Reference Guide  guide has several posters and quick reference sheets. Lastly blogs.msdn.com/…/new-device-testing-and-devops-posters-spotted-in-vdc.aspx mentions a few of the latest posters.
