No More Read Only Files… Please Welcome Local Workspace Feature in TFS2012

  • Nov 27, 2012 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

In the previous versions of TFS, files were marked as read only to indicate that they were in a checked in state. It was also a pain to check in the files that were processed outside Visual Studio from Team Explorer. Things have changed!! TFS2012 comes loaded with a new feature that is the “Local Workspace” feature.

In this presentation, Ahmed will show the Local Workspace feature in action. Ahmed will also show the new look of team explorer in Visual Studio 2012 while presenting the topic.

    Unfortunately, the VM that had Visual Studio installed wasn't recognizing the TFS Server on another VM although it was just before I left to the office. I decided to install Visual Studio on another VM that was recognizing the server instead of wasting time troubleshooting the problem.

    Please accept my apology and hope you enjoyed the topic.

    The presentation would have gone a lot better if the presenters laptop had been all ready to go. Having to install Visual Studio etc during the talk was unfortunate lack of preparation.
