Description

Visual Studio Team Service and even Team Foundation Server on premise provide a great deal of features and capabilities out of the box. In this course, Building an Integration with Visual Studio Team Services API, it is very advantageous for you to be able to integrate Visual Studio Team Services features and capabilities directly into your own development team's custom tools and web applications. You will learn how to authenticate with Visual Studio Team Service's API using basic authentication and OAuth 2.0. You will be able to use the rich API provided by Microsoft for Visual Studio Team Service and even Team Foundation server to expand your team's software development life cycle by accessing and updating team, project, and source code metadata kept within Visual Studio Team Services. When you are finished with this course, you will have constructed an API integration framework utilizing Asp.Net MVC that your team can use to directly interact with teams and projects, work items, source code management of both Git and Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC), and test management.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Patrick Neborg, and welcome to my course on Building an Integration with Visual Studio Team Services API. I'm a senior architect at Software, creator of the best non-profit donor management system known as Donor Perfect. Visual Studio Team Services is widely used across development teams to successfully manage their projects and source code collaboratively making it an ideal platform to integrate directly with our own custom tools and applications through its API. In this course, we're going to learn how to build an integration with Visual Studio Team Services API for custom tools and processes that can be used by your development teams to work with Visual Studio Team Services. Some of the major topics that we'll include are OAuth 2. 0 authentication to securely allow your team members to access their own accounts with Visual Studio team services accessing and updating teams and projects, interacting with work items and test management services, and integrating with Git and Team foundation version control repositories. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create your own Visual Studio Team Services API framework to build your own custom tools and processes for your development and project teams. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Visual Studio Team Services or Team Foundation Server common features, as well as ASP. NET MVC. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into consuming REST-based API's with courses on Visual Studio Team Services, Team Foundation Server, ASP. NET MVC, or OAuth 2. 0. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about this REST API with building an integration with Visual Studio Team Services API course, at Pluralsight.
