In case you haven’t heard, VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 are officially scheduled for release on March 22nd. If you’re into playing with Betas (I know I am) and have an MSDN subscription you can go download it now. Those of you without subscriptions will need to wait about a week or so. What I […]
If you’re like me and need to do code-reviews of other people’s stuff or maybe you just want to see everything that’s changed during a certain period of a project, then here’s a nice PowerShell tip for you. First, make sure you’ve downloaded the latest version of the Team Foundation Powertools. Starting with the October […]
Guess we can look forward to the first service pack for VS 2005 in Sept. For details, check out this page over on MSDN.
Run, don’t walk, over to Channel9 and check out this awesome demonstration of all the capabilities of Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals. Then click here to download the latest CTP which was released last week. While database projects weren’t amazing in VS2003, I was extremely frustrated that they absolutely crippled the feature in VS2005. […]

We’ve been using it here at Mimeo ever since we started our 2.0/2005 migration and had great success wth it even in the beta stages. The differences between RC1 and Release are surprisingly big, but I […]
I made a post to the Team Build forums about two weeks ago about the inability to use multiple .testrunconfig settings in a Team Build and, unfortunately, haven’t heard back from anyone on it yet. So I figured I’d post it here in case anyone else is stumbles across the limitation and is looking for help. […]
So Mimeo has officially made the shift to VS 2005/.NET 2.0 this weekend. Part of that was cutting over to Team Foundation Server completely. We’ve been using TFS for about a month now with great success, but we’ve only been using the Work Item Tracking features thus far. This weekend, I finally migrated our Visual Source […]
It’s late and I’m definitely overtired and getting that halo effect around my monitor, but… am I missing something or does VS 2005 give you no way to do PDBOnly builds through the IDE? Well, in any case I made it do it by editing the csproj, which is just an MSBuild file, by hand. […]
