Getting Started With Team Foundation Service

Before reading this article, please read my article describing how to connect the Team Foundation Service (TFS) to Visual Studio 2013 Preview.

Introduction

In this article, I am introducing the procedure for uploading your source code in the Team Foundation Service to Visual Studio 2013 Preview. This helps you to build and share your source code with team members. The procedure for uploading the code to TFS is the following:

  • Work with Source Control
  • Source Code in TFS

Work with Source Control

  1. At first, connect with the Team Foundation Service account. If you do not have an account, then create it; you need to create your Visual Studio account.
     
  2. If you want to work with Source Control then you need a location in which to put your source code or solution. The location helps you to view your source control items. When choosing a location, choose one that is easy to remember.

  3. Open your solution in Visual Studio 2013 Preview.
