Microsoft Virtual Academy: Team Foundation Server 2012 Jump Start

Microsoft ha rilasciato di recente una piattaforma per l’e-learning: la Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA).
Ogni settimana sono disponibili nuovi corsi, ed è possibile iscriversi gratuitamente a numerosi corsi su prodotti e tecnologie Microsoft; una vera occasione per una formazione gratuita fornita da esperti Microsoft.
Microsoft Virtual Academy fornisce (previa autenticazione con account Microsoft) una dashboard che tiene traccia del proprio piano di studi personale, i corsi attivi con relativa percentuale di completamento, ed i corsi completati.

Inoltre, effettuando l’accesso a Microsoft Virtual Academy, si può usufruire di uno sconto del 50% sugli e-book e del 40% sui libri stampati.

Per una prima ‘degustazione’ della nuova piattaforma, vi riporto di seguito un interessante corso (Administering Visual Studio TFS 2012 Jump Start) relativo a Team Foundation Server 2012, un prodotto Microsoft per la gestione del Source Versioning e per l’application lifecycle management.

TFS find in files version history with Visual Studio 2010 and 2012

Recently I needed to find in all files version history of a TFS 2010 project with Visual Studio 2010.

Searching on Google I found Visual Studio 2010 and 2012 extensions, developed by Mattias Sköld, that allow you to achieve the goal.

Let’s see how to find inside all version of files with Visual Studio 2010 on TFS 2010.

Once installed the TFS Administrators Toolkit for VS 2010 extension we will get the feature by right-clicking on the TFS root Collection from Team Explorer window, as illustrated in Figure 1.

If you need to force undo checkout for a file checked out by another user you can use the following command from Visual Studio Command Prompt:

tf undo /workspace:WORKSPACE;username $/MyTFSProject/MyFile.cs /s:http://tfsURL:8081

where

you can find WORKSPACE;username by right click on file from Source Control -> Properties -> Status tab
and $/MyTFSProject/MyFile.cs is file path
and http://tfsURL:8081 is TFS server URL

Enjoy!
