A few weeks ago Microsoft released Team Foundation Service, which is Team Foundation Server moved to the cloud. This gives development teams a chance to store their source code and work items in the cloud, making server configuration a thing of the past. Small teams with up to five people go for free. Check out the headlines at https://tfs.visualstudio.com/ to get a jump start.

This new offer is working pretty well “right out of the box”. A few clicks on the web and a few steps in Visual Studio and you are up and running. Team projects in the cloud have the form of xxx.visualstudio.com as shown in the following example:
Project hosting at Team Foundation Service

Team Foundation Services are rather easy to set up:

  1. Make sure you are using TFS as the source control plugin in Visual Studio (see the menu item Tools/Options/Source Control).
  2. Now you are ready to connect to TFS in the cloud. Point to Team/Connect to Team Foundation Server/Servers/Add... and provide the link to the online presence you created.
  3. Make sure to set up your local mapping as a link between the TFS environment and your local drive as a working folder.

Please mind the prerequisites for Visual Studio 2010: Install Service Pack 1 and take a look at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2662296.
