Diving into Team Foundation Server Extensibility

Damian Brady


Thought Team Foundation Server was a black box? Think again!

In this session, we'll look at the many different options you have for extending TFS to get even more out of the product.

We'll briefly talk about some of the more well-known extensibility features like Process Template Customization. We'll then move onto some of the less well-known extensibility points, taking a look at the Server and Client Object Models and how you can use them to perform additional tasks and integrate with external systems. Finally, we'll take a peek at some other quick and easy ways to subscribe to events and get information out of Team Foundation Server.
