  1. Create migration tooling for TFS

    As a ALM Consulting I need good migration tooling so that I can push data from one TFS server to another.

    The idea would be to create solid open source tooling that really supports consultants in the field. The TFS Integration Tools are too often a sledge hammer when a scalpel will do and the lack of investment is making them more and more irrelevant. We need to have simple tooling to move work between TFS servers, Collections, and Team Projects which is not currently supported scenarios in the Integration Tools.

      • Using DSC, bring the Virtual Machines into the ALM lifecycle.

        Using DSC as a VM "definition language", develop the process that Will allow the VMs to be generated as part of the buld process. This Will allow maintenance teams to generate development VMs on request, as well as test environments to be generated and integrated with the Test Management tooling.

        • Enhance the v2 and v3 ALM Readiness Treasure Maps

          Enhance the v2 and then the v3 ALM Readiness Treasure Map. Consider a v3 to implement features mentioned as vNext in http://blogs.msdn.com/b/willy-peter_schaub/archive/2013/08/03/alm-readiness-treasure-map-v2-1-and-vnext-feature-triage.aspx.

          If you feel that the team should continue its showcase, readiness and dog-fooding project with a v4, then donate your vote(s) to this idea.

          • Custom UI controls for custom applications that interact with TFS

            Based on a discussion on the ALM Champs list and ALM Rangers Forums:

            I’d love control(s) that:
            - Allows me to pick files and/or folders from TFVC and/or Git
            - Allows me to configure and save a ACL for an object of my choosing (akin to the Team Administrator ACL)
            - Allows me to select a Build (output)
            - Allows me to select tests to run (akin to the automation… window)
            - Allows me to pick one or more area’s/iterations
            - Allows me to pick one or more teams
            - Check-in UI
            - etc

            These would allow others to easily…

              • Turn the Visual Studio Performance Testing Quick Reference Guide into a Wiki site

                The Rangers, MCS and P&P have this beautiful >static< guidance for best practices on various topics. My proposal is to take one of these sources of content and turn it a Wiki that will hopefully stay fresh through community interaction. As i have a had a couple of people ask about this document, written in 2010, http://vsptqrg.codeplex.com/
                Visual Studio Performance Testing Quick Reference Guide (Version 3.6) i start there...

                • Create short guidance on the differences between VSO, On-premise TFS, and TFS on Azure IAAS

                  Teams new to TFS (or moving IT to cloud) constantly struggle when trying to decide between Visual Studio Online and on-premise TFS. With TFS on Azure IAAS also as an option, the decision is even more difficult. The Rangers could create some short and concise guidance on which one to select.

                  There is some guidance from Microsoft already out there (http://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/products/compare-visual-studio-products-vs), but it is mostly marketing/licensing fluff and doesn't address the details. What am I really missing with VSO at the technical level? E.g. Can I update a process template?

                  Note that multiple queries to the Rangers forum…

                  • TFS Prepare to Move a.k.a. TFS sanity check

                    Creation of a tool that performs a sanity check to a TFS installation and generates a report on found issues, recommendations for resolution of problems, optimization suggestions, etc.

                    I'm currently performing a migration and hitting all the stones one at a time, which is very time consuming. Such a tool (as the preupgradecheck for sharepoint) would help to create a report on found issues, its criticity, possible solutions etc. Such a tool could me integrated in maintenance plans for any instance.
