A couple of weeks ago, coinciding with the Visual Studio 2013 Launch event, I wrote a blog post published in the Microsoft MVP Blog, here is an excerpt:
One of the great new features of TFS 2013 is the addition of Git as a source code repository. Git is a Distributed Version Control System (DVCS) that has gained a lot of popularity in the past few years. Git allows you and your team to work completely disconnected by keeping a copy of your source code locally, including all your change history. By doing this, you are able to commit your changes locally, do file comparisons, create branches, merge your code, and much more. Once you are ready to share your changes with the rest of the team, you are able to push your changes to the centralized Git repository contained in your TFS Server.
This is an awesome new addition to TFS, which will give you and your team another option for source control. If you have team members working outside of Visual Studio, they are able to connect to Git from their favorite Git plugin and collaborate with the rest of the team. The greatest part is that all the integrations that we all love about TFS is still there, so you get all the great features of Git while being able to collaborate with the rest of the team using Work Item Tracking, Build Integration, Microsoft Test Manager, and more. Now go out and give it a try!
