Brian Harry, technical fellow at Microsoft, has pretty much become synonymous with Team Foundation Server. He not only leads the Team Foundation Server team in Raleigh, North Carolina, he also has the most widely
read blog about what's going on with Team Foundation Server. But even Brian hasn't been saying much about Team Foundation Server 2010 until this week. I sat down with Brian and let him finally spill the beans on what his team has been working on.

Brian remains fairly high-level for this interview because there's a lot to cover, but we have six other interviews going live today featuring his program management team going deep on everything he talks about.

I even got Brian to talk a bit about his farm which has been keeping him busy outside of work. Smiley

    Okay, so any news on what templates will be availble for 2010? Where can I find more meat on process templates for 2010?

    Hey Bishop! 

    We have already made updates on the existing Agile template. You can see some information around what we have done by checking out this video on agile planning: You can also completely check out the updates to the agile template in the upcoming Dev10 September CTP. The goal of the Community Technology Preview is to obtain feedback from our customers on the new scenarios we have enabled. Starting on October 27th you can learn more about the CTP, get a link to the download and engage in a conversation with the team from here:

    I really prefer to talk about what we have done than promise stuff in the pipeline, so let's start there, and I'll just say that there are alot more things I would LOVE to see us do with process templates. As always, we really appreciate feedback about what's important to you, and I would love to see any feedback on the CTP set of changes to the agile template.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Stephanie,


    My current employer has been extremely disappointed by the data tiers failover procedure with SQL server mirroring for TFS 2008 ("> .


    We are curious if TFS2010 will improve in this area and will natively support automated failover, leveraging a SQL mirror and its witness in a high availability scenario so that in case teh primary data server dies, we do not experience downtime.
