Martin Woodward dropped in to the studio to share the news that Git repos are now fully supported on Team Foundation Service and that Microsoft has released Visual Studio Tools for Git. You can now choose which source control system you prefer, either the centralized version control provided by Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) or the distributed version control provided by Git - while maintaining the same integrated experience provided by the Visual Studio 2012, and getting all of the ALM benefits that come with TFS. Using Visual Studio and the Visual Studio Tools for Git extension, you can connect to any Git provider, whether it's Team Foundation Service or a third party.
In this short video, Martin takes us on a lightning tour of these new capabilities. If you would like to try this yourself head on over to http://tfs.visualstudio.com to get yourself an account with the Team Foundation Service, and/or download the Visual Studio Tools for Git.
