  1. 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.

    • Cloud Load Test, Application Insights and Windows Azure - Better Together Guidance

      I would like to provide a guide to answer two simple questions:

      1) Does my application support *** users?
      2) If not, what do I have to do?

      We could create a guide teaching how to combine Cloud Load Test, Application Insights and Windows Azure in order to show how to answer these questions.
      • What scenarios should I consider for my Load Test?
      • How many agents do I need? How to know if the agents are over capacity?
      • How to distribute the user load?
      • All my requests returned HTTP 200. Is it good? Cache / CDN…

      • 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...

            • VSO/TFS Query Cook Book

              I think a book (pdf, document, wiki etc...) in the style of a cook book, rather than cooking recipes has a TFS/VSO query that someone has used.

              Each recipie describes the problem and how to craft the query in VSO/TFS - they should ultimately be really short.

              Where do we get them? from everyone! Since they are short we can easily get a different ranger, product group member or anyone to submit them and we catalog them.

              The idea is to provide a document where someone can say - hey, I think it would be useful to have a query…
