Create new Octopus Release from TFS Build


In this article we will have a look at how we can automate the Octopus deployment using TFS build server. Every time a member of the team performs a check-in I want to execute a continuous build with the following workflow:

Writing a Win8 App with VisualStudio and TFS


A lot of people ask me how they can write a Windows 8 App with Visual Studio and Team Foundation Service (our online, hosted version of Team Foundation Server). In fact, I was talking with a friend recently whom I used to code with about 10 years ago. It had been a long time since he programmed with C# (nearly 10 years?) as he now spends most of his time programming low level driver code. He challenged me with how fast a "new" developer could get started with writing a Windows 8 App. He set the challenge asking if a new developer could get started in under 1 day. Challenge accepted. Challenge accomplished. Here is my journey through documenting how a new developer can get started with Windows 8 application development using Visual Studio & Team Foundation Service.

How to Check-In, Check-Out silently using commands in TFS?


Majority of the developers uses source control server as their project's repository. SVN and TFS (Team Foundation Server) are one of them. If you are one of the user, you are already familiar with the Check-In and Check-Out process that we do from Team Explorer. In some case, you may need to do the same from command prompt. Today, this post will cover how to Check-Out and Check-In files/folders from command prompts. Visual Studio comes up with a command file named "TF.exe" which resides in the common IDE folder of the Visual Studio installation directory. If you want to check-out and check-in files or folders silently from the Team Foundation Server using commands, you have to be familiar with this TF.exe file. If you are using Visual Studio 2008, you will find it under: "X:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\TF.exe" If you are using Visual Studio 2010, you will find it under: "X:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft...

How to auto publish a website each time a #TFS build succeeds?


Once you set up your TFS build server with an automated build, the big boss will ask you to publish the web project to the intermediate server each time a new build occurs. This might be for the testers to make sure that the code is working properly. What to do? You analysed that, it will hamper your productivity. Isn't it? Then what to do? Can we automate the build server to deploy the new code each time it succeeds? Let's discuss it. Automate Deploy after each Build You might have already created the build definition in your TFS server for either manual or automated build (compilation of your source code) and to reduce your effort of deployment, now you want to automate the publishing of your web project to the server. This will not only reduce your burdens but also make sure that your server has the latest code always for testing. To implement this, edit the build definition (you must be a TFS build Administrator) and navigate to the "Process"...

Solution to TFS Build Error - The Silverlight 4 SDK is not installed


Today while creating my first CI Build definition in the Visual Studio Team Foundation Server, I noticed that, though the Silverlight 5 SDK is installed in the server, I was unable to run the build. It was throwing an error message that says "The Silverlight 4 SDK is not installed". The issue was not actually with the Silverlight SDK and I found the solution after lots of analysis. In this post, I am going to share it so that, if you come across the same issue, it will be helpful. Build Issue I was actually trying to create a build definition to do automated build on each code check-in named as CI build (Continuous Integration) for one of my Silverlight project. When I triggered the build for the first time, I noticed that the build failed as it was unable to detect Silverlight 4 SDK in the server. The Team Foundation Server (TFS) was recently upgraded to TFS 2012 from the TFS 2010 version and the Silverlight 5 SDK was installed earlier prior to TFS...

Code Review for Visual Studio 2012 Professional with TFS 2012


In VS 2012 Premium and Ultimate, we have a module for Code Review in which the developer will request another user to review code and in the response, the other user will give us suggestions. For more details, please visit Jeff Fattic blogs. Also in VS 2010 with TFS 2010 there was no concept of code review. But CodePlex members came up with a solution called TeamReview - TFS Code Review. But there is nothing for VS 2012 with TFS 2012. Even in the discussion thread, there is no solution for VS 2012. For more details, please visit TeamReview - TFS Code Review and you can download the setup from TeamReview Download.

TFS, Automated Testing and Continuous Integration


TFSBuild is an incredibly customisable tool. Many out there might already use it to build and deploy their applications to test environments. These might be virtual environments, lab environments or in the cloud somewhere. What I want to discuss in this article is how we can use TFS to automatically test our test environments. That is, define a set of 'Post-Deployment' tests that can be run against a test environment after the latest version of the codebase has been deployed to it. These tests might just check all components have been deployed correctly and are available or they might actually try to exercise functionality and the end to end operation of your system.

This is continuous integration at it's best. I can get daily, even hourly, feedback on the operation of the latest version of my system. There are no nasty surprises at the end of a development cycle and we can hand an environment over to testers knowing it is fit for purpose.

How to deploy your applications from TFSBuild is out of the scope of this article and very much depends on what you are deploying and where you want to deploy it to. What I will talk about is how to customise TFS Build to allow you to run a set of 'Post-Deployment' tests and also a discussion on what these tests might look like and other issues that you may face.

Example code is supplied and written using VS 2010 and against TFS 2010 although exactly the same principles apply to TFS 2012.
