Brian Keller, Microsoft Principal Technical Evangelist for Visual Studio, gives us his top 5 reasons for using Visual Studio Online.  This is a good overview of Microsoft's Cloud-based Developer Services Platform.

  • I'm excited for VS Online to support Active Directory integration.

    Hey. I have a question.

    Can we hook up a build server we set up in our office environment to TFS Online?

    Me too! It's very high on our backlog.

  • Hey. I have a question.

    Yes you can - you can either use our hosted built controller or set up your own.

    Start here for hosted: http://www.visualstudio.com/get-started/build-your-apps-vs

    Or here for determining when you should consider using your own: http://www.visualstudio.com/get-started/hosted-build-controller-vs

    I have a account from a time. Today When I logged-in I see

    "Your account is an Early Adopter account. In 63 days your account will revert to a standard account.".

    I convert to basic my account but it's still shown me. What it means. Is I will start my project online then it will deleted after 63 days or not ?

    Anirudrha, no you get to keep your code. It is free for up to 5 people in your team on a standard account. It is just no longer an unlimited number like before on an early adopter account.

  • Mark is right. The "early adopter" message at the top of your screen indicates that since you were a user of VSO prior to Nov 13, we are allowing you to make unlimited use of VSO for the time being as our thank you to you for being an early adopter.

    After that time is up you can continue to use VSO for free for up to 5 users and you will have the option of paying for additional users and capabilities beyond that. All of the VSO capabilities I showed in the video are included in the free basic account, but there are some advanced capabilities you might decide you want to pay for (additional users > 5, portfolio management, additional load testing minutes, additional hosted build minutes, etc.). The VSO Advanced plan is covered here: http://www.visualstudio.com/products/visual-studio-online-advanced-vs

  • awesome video Brian and great information.

    Cool

  • To the Cloud and beyond ...

    Thanks Brian - another great visionary opportunity.

  • LeonLeon

    I'm in.

    Brain, thanks for the video. I am a hobbyist just getting started in the vast world of cloud computing. The future is Microsoft and I am fully committed to learning as much as I can. Are there any code walkthroughs or sample projects that I could follow to set up a test case scenario...something to model from?

  • @Buckland Plus8: That's a great attitude, keep up your passion for learning all you can! I wish I did more of that as a student prior to joining the "real world." For Visual Studio Online tutorials check out http://www.visualstudio.com/get-started/overview-of-get-started-tasks-vs

    Thanks Brian, That did get me on the path to learning, along with your book and http://fabrikam.codeplex.com/

    Soy principiante en VB y quiero aprender mas.¿Cual verssión me recomienda?

  • Excited to try it, but have a question, is VSO including DEV for Office applications such as VSTO ?

    Regards,

    Mehdi

  • @MehdiH: VSO allows you to host any type of project. Note that Visual Studio Online is not an online development environment like Visual Studio itself. VSO is more like TFS.
  • @briankel:;)

    Visual Studio Online is a great place for project collaboration. Any plans to support an online IDE, such as the full fledged Visual Studio itself?

    I can't predict the future, but there isn't anything beyond the "Monaco" online editor happening in the near term. Speaking from my own personal experience I will always prefer a desktop IDE over a web-based experience. It works offline, and it's much faster than dealing with network latency for every UI action. A good analogy here is Outlook. It's amazing what the engineering team has done to make Outlook Web Access a viable web-based email tool, but it is no substitute for the full power of the desktop client.

    Una recomendación que creo los latinos agradeceremos tengan una versión en español de su channel 9, gracias

  • Great suggestion, Francisco! Most videos you can now click on the "CC" button on the video player to enable Spanish translations.

    Gran sugerencia, Francisco! Mayoría de los videos ahora puede hacer clic en el botón "CC" en el reproductor de vídeo para habilitar las traducciones al español.
