Canberra .NET User Group: Diving into Team Foundation Server Extensibility

Canberra .NET User Group: "Diving into Team Foundation Server Extensibility" - Damian Brady

Have you ever wanted Team Foundation Server to do X? You probably can!

In this demo-heavy, interactive session, we'll look at the many different options you have for extending TFS to get even more out of the product, including the brand new REST API and Web Hooks features just released at Tech Ed North America.

We'll briefly talk about some of the more well-known extensibility points then move onto some of those that are less well-known. We'll take a look at the Server and Client Object Models and we'll take a peek at some other quick and easy ways to subscribe to events and get information out of Team Foundation Server. Finally, we'll drill into the new REST API and Web Hooks for the newest and best way to interact with Team Foundation Server 2013.

    Anyway it is not important compared to Xamarin. Come to a and you'll be converted.

    Any feedback for Damian's TFS presentation? He is keen as he is redelivering it in Sydney for

      Thanks Richard, I'll incorporate that. That was my intention with the extensibility groupings and images (the purple blocks with arrows and stuff) but it obviously didn't communicate well.
