Since 12 months, some words get involved in everyday operations:
ALM, Continuous Integration, TFS2010, VS2010, FxCop, Build server, MSBuild, Agile and MSF Agile v5, TFS Work Items.
Theses others words are following:
.net, wcf, wpf, wf, Enterprise Library, Unity, linq, Entity Framework, log4net, codeplex, MSDN library, Windows Server, SQL Server, SharePoint and Windows Phone.
Rencently, I setup a TFS 2010 platform for team development using Visual Studio 2010. According to the team members, the integration with VS2010 is very cool.
Day-to-day operations, work items and the CI features (quality with code analysis, build management, reporting) brings better development experiences. Projects migration into TFS SCM was very easy.
I made the promotion of the codeplex TFS Guide http://tfsguide.codeplex.com/
The platform was built on top of Windows Server and SQL Server 2008.
Building applications using Platform SDK is strongly encouraged by Microsoft. Next month, my new article about multi-core programming using Visual C++ 2010 and ConcRT will be available in French Programmez july/august newspaper.
