Why doesn't TFS get latest get the latest?

As someone who uses TFS occasionally, the ‘get latest’ functionality has always seemed frustrating. So I did a quick bit  of research, and think this is a useful note to leave here for my future self: Why doesn't TFS get latest get the latest? TFS redefined what "Get Latest" does. In TFS terms, Get Latest means get the latest version of the files, but ignore the ones that the server thinks is already in your workspace. Which to me and just about everyone else on the planet is wrong.

Enabling NuGet package restores on a TFS build server

Posting this here so I can find it again later: Enable NuGet package restore on the build server The shorter version: Add a new environment variable on the server via System Properties named "EnableNuGetPackageRestore", with a value of true, and retry your build. Tags: TFS

TFS is destroying your development capacity

TFS is destroying your development capacity – an interesting read for anyone who loves/hates TFS. Certainly there’s a few things here I identify with (try working with a TFS server at the other end of a distant VPN and you’ll find the requirement for constant active communication becomes very old very quickly!). Whether you love or hate TFS, the post is worth a read. Tags: TFS

Useful connectivity links for anyone using Team Foundation Server 2010 and needing legacy compatibility

People who have been following the development of TFS 2010 have probably heard of these already. I’m currently using TFS on a project, but haven’t in a while, so thought these were worth mentioning. Useful for people who need to run older versions of Visual Studio / BI Studio, or for OSX users who are after some basic TFS connectivity in order to pollute repositories worldwide with annoying .DS_Store files, yay!

TFS Workgroup Edition, SubVersion, TRAC

In a recent discussion around replacing source control systems at work, the subject of Team Foundation Server "Workgroup Edition" was raised. At the time, the team could easily handle the 5 user limitation, so it seemed like it could be a good way to get TFS up and running without incurring the full costs of the product. However in the back of my mind alarm bells were ringing. Memories of the "procedure" to upgrade from the 2005 beta to the final product were lingering - luckily I wasn't the one who had to do it in that case, but...

SvnBridge

SvnBridge allows you to use TortoiseSVN (or other SubVersion clients) with Team Foundation Server. Version 2 was released on Apr 23 2008, so it's been around for a while. I can think of quite a few scenarios and groups of people who could find this very handy. (It's also one of the few times you'll see the two tags below this line against a single post) Tags: Subversion , TFS

Day-to-day with Subversion

Day to Day with Subversion is a good post with some how to info regarding branching and merging using svn. Good reading. Also interesting to read about people moving from TFS to SVN due to TFS being over complicated and bloated (although it's Source Control is for the most part pretty good, I quite like the fact that my svn box can run in about 128mb of RAM, compared to what I'd need for TFS... shudder).
