For all you TFS junkies, check out Brian's post about the release of the much anticipated TFS Service Pack 1 Beta! Nice………….Well done guys.
Got news form Grant Holliday that his online OzTFS comunity baby is launched and ready to go. Nice job mate. I'm subscribed!! If you want to be aswell, head down to OzTFS.com and join the community.
A new build of Team Foundation Power Toys (TFPT) has been released! You can download it from here.
Check out Brian's post for all the goodness. There is also a new forum
dedicated for power toys along with all the other VSTS and TFS forums.
Check it out and post your questions/troubles/comments there once you
get in and start playing with the toys.
Everyone is talking about their Tech-Ed experiences so I thought I would rant in. I must say that my first Tech-Ed experience was awesome. A few highlights come to mind.
- Managed to get to a couple of VSTS sessions which were great.
- Networking with people who I had never met, rarely see and see all the time!
- Watching the Devgarten flourish and deliver.
- Presenting with Mitch.
- Tech-Ed Party, Croatian restaurants and everything in-between!
All in all, it was a great experience and I am looking forward to the Gold Coast next year for Tech-Ed ‘07.
Speaking of Jean Luc, get your hands on his (and co) Professional Team System book when you get a chance. Thouroghly recommended. It has been out for a while now and I know some of you out there were at the launch and had it signed and such. Grab it. It’s a good read.
I was lucky enough to contribute to this fine publication which was a great experience and seeing my name in a published tech book is a little weird and cool at the same time!
Nice work guys.
Just wanted to congratulate (belatedly) my friend Jean Luc David for his move to Microsoft Canada as a developer evangelist. Well done JL!
As everyone pretty much knows, Tech-Ed is happening next week in Sydney and being my first TE (and presenting), I’m pretty excited! I am especially looking forward to the VSTS and TFS related content and as such, I thought I would collate it right here. Check it out.

There will undoubtedly be more mentions through other presentations as it’s such a wide and diverse product, not to mention lots of cabana sessions centered around VSTS and TFS, so it should be a good VSTSFest.
Holy crap!!! 5 months since my last posting. I have some ground to make up me thinks…..apologies to the three people who read my blog!!
Anyways, I will be back with more ramblings anytime now.
I received an unexpected suprise in the mail last week. My own little Fender Stratocaster!
