As the most important component of Microsoft's Visual Studio(r) 2005 Team System, Team Foundation Server is the central integration point that provides a collaborative environment for every member of a team, regardless of role. Since Team Foundation Server is so tightly interwoven with the rest of Team System, the authors have decided to present you with an invaluable resource that covers both, so that you may learn to set up and administer Team Foundation Server in order to effectively use the whole Team System toolset effectively.
Three Microsoft Team System MVPs cover how to plan a Team System deployment, complete a software project, and everything in between. They show you how to handle real-world challenges and tackle the tasks and scenarios that encompass the entire software development lifecycle.
