Mattias Sköld, Vladimir Gusarov, Esteban Garcia and Tomas Scott give us an insight into the inner world of the Quick Response TFS Branch Tool, its architecture and the rules engine in an interesting RangersTalk. This solution developed as part of the ALM Rangers dog-fooding and the Quick Response solution family, by the phenomenal team that was distributed around the planet (North America, Sweden and Russia).
Micheal Learned demonstrates the Visual Studio Extension solution as part of his chat with Brian Keller in Branching and Merging Guidance for Team Foundation Server. Make sure you watch this session after this RangersTalk to see the solution "in action".
