Microsoft Patterns and Practices team has released first several topics as a part of Visual Studio 2005 Team System Guidance. This project will be the “single best repository of Visual Studio Team System guidance”, including practical scenario-based guidance for roles such as PMs, developers, architects, testers. It contains thoroughly engineered and tested set of recommendations, and it will be the single entry point for videos, roadmaps, and task-based how-tos. Particularly interesting part of this project is the Team Foundation Server Branching Guide.
This is an on-going work, and it gets announced in J. D. Meier’s blog as new parts appear:
