WorkItem Glass

Screen shot 8



So in my quest to find new and interesting interfaces for TFS, my buddy Chris Koenig introduced me to this little gem. It’s geared for the non-developer roles who want a nice, friendly look and feel to work items. Check it out for yourself here:



Here is some information verbatim from the site:

    Hi MattK, @workitemglass developers here.  We made a conscious decision to target Windows 8.x (Desktop and Surface) devices really for two reasons:  as a learning opportunity for building applications targeting these devices and to make accessing TFS data consumable for non-developer team roles.

    WorkItem Glass was built using the new Windows 8 client application model that allows us to take advantage of HTML, Javascript, and CSS.

    We hope you get the chance to check WorkItem Glass out on a Windows 8 device.

    I wish it worked with on premise TFS and not just VSO, seems like a missed opportunity. 🙁

    Yeah I agree, Sberens

    Maybe they will make one compatible with on prem or you could roll your own maybe…
