DevPro article on TFS & Git integration

As you may have noticed by now, I’m a big proponent of Git and the great workflow that it provides developers. 

Now that Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2013 provides the option to use either Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) or Git for your source control repository, you need to understand the pros and cons of each option. If you decide to use Git, you need a good plan so that your transition is smooth and so that you get the biggest benefit from Git.

I wrote an article for DevPro about Git and Team Foundation Server and it was published this week.  In this article, I explain the benefits of using Git.

And if you want to learn more about Git from a Visual Studio developer’s perspective, check out my Pluralsight course:
Git for Visual Studio Developers
As a developer that works primarily with Visual Studio, you may be used to working with a Centralized Version Control System. This course shows you how to use and get the most out of Git while staying inside of your Visual Studio IDE. The course covers Visual Studio 2010, 2012, and 2013 and shows you new capabilities introduced by Git inside of TFS 2013.

    Is this possible through MTM2013 using TFS2010 ?

    1. esteban

      No, this is a TFS Feature not an MTM feature, so you need TFS 2013

    When I select Test Case chart, nothing appears in the Group by drop down. Why not?

    In reference to test case charts in tfs 2013 update 4:

      Bruce, make sure that before you try to do charts, you go to the Test tab, then click on Column Options, and add the columns that you want to group by. The charts only act on the data that is displayed on the grid.

    Is there any way to update string in test steps of multiple test cases in one go, like ctrl+h?

    I thought that packages restored to the C:\Users\{user}\.dnx\packages directory? I don’t have the test adapter DLL in my bin folder. In fact, I don’t even have a bin folder.

    Did anybody have the following error:
    Exception discovering tests from Test1: System.BadImageFormatException: Could not load file or assembly ‘C:\a\ff22bda8\xunit\Test1\Test1\bin\Debug\xunit.execution.desktop.dll’ or one of its dependencies. This assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded.
