@orloffm:That's fair feedback. We tend to use these Foundational sessions as an annual update for the things our team is working on related to ALM / DevOps. It just so happens that for this cycle the bulk of our innovation has happened on VSO, although I did cover a few things which are specific to TFS today (like our Release Management tooling).

That was great! I especially loved the picks of the week.
I wonder if that car can take off and land on a paved runway. It sure looked like the belly would have gotten scraped up.
Wow, such nice comments all around. Dan and I are very humbled by the nice things everybody has to say.
Doctor Who, I'm glad I'm not the only one who still uses my Zune! I never did get a Zune HD but I might go pick one up on eBay so that I can stay connected to TWC9 moving forward.
Dcuccia, we were both very touched by your comments, thank you for sharing! It sounds like things are going well for you. We are happy to have played a small role in your journey.
Thanks everybody for the outpouring of very nice comments! We are going to miss doing the show every week but I'm sure we'll be back from time to time. You are in very good hands now with Nikola, Vlad, Jeremy, Nisha and of course Greg who has been with TWC9 since the very beginning.
I'll be tuning in every week.
@dhollon: Visual Studio Online provides you with a place to store your source code and manage your projects. I would say anecdotally that yes, the vast majority of customers I speak to are practicing some form of Scrum and using continuous integration as well. I would encourage you to check out our Get Started tutorials which detail some of the specific tasks VSO can help you with. Here's a specific topic on Continuous Deployment to Azure.

@terrajobst:Immo, apparently we aren't the only ones to get confused about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Romulan_starship#Bird-of-Prey :)
I just read about the Okudagrams, awesome.

@SanjayKSharma: You're most welcome! I love the template, great idea.
Hi Patrick, thanks for watching.
Today as you probably know there is no integration between our on-premises Release Management solution and Visual Studio Online. If you want to use Visual Studio Online but still take advantage of Release Management on premises, I have seen some customers set up integration bridges between the two. This is fairly straightforward to do if you are using Git. So for example you would do your day-to-day work in VSO, then set up a mirror between the VSO Git repo and an on-premises TFS server's Git repo. You could then check into VSO, mirror your changes to TFS, trigger a build, and have RM deploy it.
In a scenario such as this you would be required to have user licenses for VSO and TFS, as well as a TFS server license, and the appropriate Release Management deployment licenses. If you already have MSDN Subscriptions then this would cover you for the user licenses and TFS server license. If you had VS Ultimate licenses this would also grant you an allocation of Release Management deployment licenses.
Feel free to keep the Channel 9 conversation going if I didn't fully answer your question, although I also wanted to point you at the Visual Studio Licensing Whitepaper which might be helpful.
