Getting started with TFS

Getting started with TFS

Getting started with TFS

We just installed the TFS on a server.  
I can connect to it from within my VS 2010.  
I have two products that I need to get under source control.  
I created two "Team Project Collections" (TPC) one for each product.

Now I have to do two things:
1.  Import the source code that represents what is currently in production into the TPC's I assume.  We will call that version 1.0. That would be my base, I presume.
2.  Place the code I currently have inside my VS 2010 environment into the TPC's call them version 1.1.

Then, from that point on, I need to know how to make use of TFS?  I am familiar with VSS (although I never set it up from the beginning) so I know about checking out and checking in; labeling code in preparation for release.  I've never done the retrieval of the labelled code and created a build before.

I've never started with nothing before so I'm really at a loss as to what to do.

Thanks in advance,

Jerry Scannell

RE: Getting started with TFS

The first thing to remember is to use the tool to help you in your current processes and not let TFS dictate how you do things.

Here's a link that describes how to get around and do the basics of TFS.
