If you use TFS then it is well worth a look at Brian Harry’s Teched2014 session ‘Modern Application Lifecycle Management’. It goes through changes and new features with TFS both on-premise and in the cloud, including
- Migrating Your Data from TFS to Visual Studio Online with New Free Utility from OpsHub
- Authentication with your corporate Active Directory account via AAD (planned for Summer 2014)
- New API is based on REST, OAUTH, Json and Service Hooks
- Release Management, PowerShell DSC, ability to link Azure VMs including client OS for dev/test
- Application Insights available inside Visual Studio
- Azure vNext portal – bring it all together
Not all these features are in 2013.2 (which was released during the conference). However, in the session they said Visual Studio 2013.3CTP is going to be available next week, so not long to wait if you want a look at the latest features.
