New Team Foundation Server Connector : Looking for Beta Testers


I am working with Team Foundation Server for our NAV team since 2010. As you can read on this blog we are using version control, agile planning and collaboration, build automation and test management. The first version of our source control plugin was based on visual studio 2010. Now we have visual studio / team foundation server (online) 2013. Time to migrate to the latest and greatest version of both products.

Our source control plugin for vs2010 was a plugin inside visual studio. That was certainly a nice solution but not perfect: one had to switch to visual studio to check-out objects and the plugin was dependent on the vs version. In order to improve the user experience we have shifted to a new architecture: we now have a Dynamics Nav connector for Team Foundation Server which runs silently in the background and does all the heavy lifting for you. You can now use the standard Microsoft Dynamics NAV development experience to develop your NAV solution and you can use the full power of TFS. This makes it possible to use the advanced features like shelving, developer isolation, build automation, unit testing and many other great features.

The connector has an easy to use cloud deployment which ensures you are always on the latest version. In the past months I have been working together with a number of alpha testers which gave great feedback. The connector is now stable and I am looking for beta testers.

Please let me know if you are interested.
