  5. 5. What the heck is TFS anyway? Why do I care about VSOnline? Online Collaboration Tools – What’s New? Testing Services – What’s New? Build Services – What’s New?
  6. 6. VSO <> Visual Studio on the web. Sorry, it’s just not! VSO includes the entire TFS portion of the VS ALM platform hosted on Azure You can leverage on-premise VS with TFS hosted in VSO Now VSO offers build, load testing, and release management! VSO services and Visual Studio can be licensed on a month-to-month basis (cannot mix with standard VS/MSDN licensing)
  7. 7. VSO is super easy to setup VSO is likely FREE for you, or at least really inexpensive VSO receives feature updates every 3 weeks! (quarterly for on-prem) But… Template customization is a bit limited (in beta now) VSO does not have SharePoint integration or OOB reporting* VSO is reliant on Azure, not all companies are comfortable with that
  8. 8. The more you know! -- TFS 2010 Goes Out of Standard Support in July!
  9. 9. This week Brian Harry announced on his blog that TFS 2015 would be delayed. “Our plan had been that the Release Candidate we shipped at the end of April would be our last public pre-release and that mid-July would be our RTM date. About a week ago, I made the decision to change the plan. Instead, we are shipping a “Release Candidate 2” now and will RTM as soon as we are ready after that.”
  10. 10.    Visual Studio and all of the IDE components WILL still release on July 20th. You can install TFS 2015 RC 2 today and it will be fully supported by Microsoft VS 2015 and the other ALM IDEs released on July 20th are fully compatible with TFS 2013 No, I don’t know when TFS 2015 is REALLY releasing and neither does Brian, yet.
