Introducing Team Foundation Build vNext

Damian Brady 


Working with Team Foundation Build doesn't feature in many "Top 10 fun things for developers" lists, but that might be about to change.

With Visual Studio 2015, Microsoft have introduced a significant update to the build automation features in Team Foundation Server (TFS) and Visual Studio Online. Bearing little resemblance to the Windows Workflow TFBuild of old, there's a completely new experience for defining, monitoring and reviewing your builds in the browser. If that's not enough, you'll soon be able to automate builds on Windows, OSX and Linux!

In this session, I'll demonstrate the new Team Foundation Build. We'll explore the new UI and architecture and show you how the new system fits together. We'll also set up a few definitions, trigger some builds, and even look at importing your own custom tasks.


I’m a Microsoft MVP in Application Lifecycle Management and I work as a Solution Architect for Octopus Deploy. I’m also a co-author of Professional Team Foundation Server 2013 from Wiley. I run the Brisbane .Net User Group, and the annual DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper Brisbane conference. I spend a lot of time training teams on how to improve their software, be it through improving their agile process, devops, or code quality. I regularly speak at conferences, User Groups, and other events, but most of the time you’ll find me working on Octopus Deploy, or helping teams get the most out of their devops strategies.
