New Website, New Us

Recently, we unveiled a new website, complete with a fresh look and even more service offerings. These offerings include Managed TFS, tiered TFS Support packages, and even services to assist you with Visual Studio Team Services. We are now able to manage your TFS platform regardless of whether it is cloud-hosted, on premises, or using the Microsoft infrastructure.


Managed TFS Services

If we look back at the history of the Team Foundation Server as a product we can clearly see the evolution from an exclusively on premises product to cloud. At PRAKTIK we tailored our services based on demand regardless of the version of TFS or physical location.


Visual Studio 2017 Launch

Visual Studio 2017 Launch

Just last week, Microsoft held a Visual Studio 2017 Launch Event in which Visual Studio 2017 was released to the public. This release touts a new lightweight and modular installation experience, which means it is much more customizable to your development needs. The IDE also has a shortened startup and load time so you can get to the code even quicker. Here, we will talk about just a few of the new features of VS 2017.

TFS Extensions – Look, bells and whistles!

With the RTM release of Team Foundation Server 2017 in November, many people are beginning to upgrade from their previous versions of TFS. However, Visual Studio Team Services, TFS’s cloud-based sibling, offers the most up-to-date features. VSTS upgrades every three weeks with the only exception being the Christmas and New Years holidays. TFS, on the other hand, upgrades every three to four months.

So which features haven’t made it to TFS 2017 yet?
