With TFS 2010 (and VS 2010), Microsoft have gotten much closer to providing the ultimate package that contains all the tools that an enterprise needs in order to work effectively, efficiently, and productively. But it is certainly the best package currently out there. It is amazing to see the level of integration that is present between the different components constituting TFS 2010 to make it a real ALM toolset when combined with VS 2010. This is something that IBM Rational has tried before and, in my opinion, failed to deliver (the tools did not play well together, and required a significant amount of effort to make them integrate well) leaving a major gap in that field which prior to TFS 2010 has been filled only by specialized integrators who had to deal with all sorts of difficulties in order to make disparate systems work together. And the good news is that this will only get way better in the next version of TFS and VS.

This book can be considered both an introductory book to TFS 2010 as well as an intermediate level coverage of TFS 2010. In fact, some chapters present an advanced coverage of some topics (the administration chapters are an example). It is an excellent guide for anyone new to TFS. It presents a clear way of getting started with TFS as well as how to move to TFS if you've already been using some other source control repository. For folks already familiar with TFS 2008 or TFS 2005 and upgrading to TFS 2010, the book does a great job of presenting all the options you have and what to do to get there. Even if you are a TFS veteran and think you are experienced and well versed in TFS, I am sure you will still find something to learn.

While the book does contain standard pieces of information that you need to administer a TFS 2010 installation, the big value is in the non-standard, non-documented, not available on the web information. Things like being able to plug into the TFS request pipeline to handle events on the server-side. A great example of this is being able to audit security through simple methods that are guaranteed to fire.

Another great focus area is customizing the process templates. In the past you might have had to call a consultant (I am one of those consultants) but this book does a great job of explaining the details so that virtually anyone can make effective changes that work right the first time.

Build automation and customization is another point that is great to show how to work with Windows Workflow.

Format: Paperback
This book should be required reading for TFS 2010 admins and TFS 2010 consultants. It's also an excellent book to anyone interested and related to ALM (Application Lifecycle Management), software engineering and software development processes.

Microsoft is the best organization when we talk about documentation. TFS 2010 have lots of user docs at MSDN and also have a TFS 2010 Instllation book and a TFS 2010 Admin book. But I recommend that anyone involved with TFS 2010 installation and administration read first this book. It will be a lot easier to understand the documentation after this book.

This book also points to a lot of material in blog posts and shows a lot of third party tools to leverage and empower TFS 2010.

If you are new to ALM in general or new to Microsoft Approach to ALM I recommend you read first the book Professional Application Lifecycle Management with Visual Studio 2010, also by Wrox Press. The "Pro ALM" book is the user view (user is any member of a software development team) and the "Pro TFS" is more about the Admin view.

This is a great book for both beginners and experts of Microsoft's Team Foundation Server 2010. Each section has a introduction chapter that is geared towards the beginner. Then each progressive chapter in the section is for more advanced users. There is even a "Getting Started" section that is great for beginners and people trying to introduce TFS into their organziation. In total, there are 5 sections:

- Getting Started
- Version Control
- Project Management
- Team Foundation Build
- Administration

What makes this book especially good, is that it is not a rehash of information from MSDN. The authors give information that can't be found anywhere else and share their personal best practices that they have learned through thousands of deployments with customers.

As an expert in TFS, I was and am learning new things through this book all the time. What a great resource! It is essential if you want to get the most out of your TFS deployment!!

Team Foundation Server is a broad subject and this is a broad book. The good news is, it is also deep.

The book is broken down into 6 parts getting started, version control, project management, team foundation build, and administration.

The book covers planning a deployment, installation and configuration, ensuring code quality, migration from legacy version control systems, branching and merging, work item tracking, customizing process templates, reporting and SharePoint dashboards, customizing the build process, scalability and high availability, disaster recovery, security, performance, testing and lab management, and distributed teams.

It covers all topics in-depth and with a clear writing styling. The text is very well written. It can be read from front to back or it can be used as a reference.

The downloadable code was very well organized and usable.

My two favorite part were the branching strategies and the process template customization. There is not a lot of good info out there on customizing the process templates, so this coverage is very valuable.

All in all if you are using or administering TFS, this is a must have reference.
