Navigation and Work Item Changes
Hello, and welcome to this module in the Team Foundation Server 2013 New Features course. In this module, we will look at the Navigation and Work Item Changes that have made working with Team Foundation Server's Web Access easier and easier. We'll specifically look at the changes to the overall navigation and the Agile Portfolio management with the inclusion of the Features Work Item. We'll take a look at how some of the backlog mapping and the updated Work Item charting make it easier to get an overall understanding of your project.

Team Changes
Hello, this is John Brown, and welcome to this course on what's new in Team Foundation Server 2013. In this module, we'll look at some usability improvements to the Work Items, and team collaboration through the Team Rooms. TFS allows our teams to work collaboratively by sharing source code and Work Items. As we learn to work together as a team, we see that if we can more easily communicate regarding the source and Work Items, each team member can feel more connected to the project, even if those team members are working around the world in different time zones. The Features we are looking at in this module will help every member share with the team information about the project, and help every team member feel connected on the project.

Git Branch and Merge
Hello. Welcome to this course on Team Foundation Server 2013's New Features. In the previous module, we introduced the new source code management system called Git, which is now available in Team Foundation Server. In this module, we'll look at the Branching and Merging features of Git with Team Foundation Server. In the previous module, we created a team project with Git. We walked through the process of how to set that up in the Team Web Access, and how to create a local repository with Visual Studio. From there, we added a new project with sample code, and we made some code modifications to that project so we could understand how the commits worked over time. As we checked in all those commits, we eventually pushed them up into TFS to see that all the changes merged up with the main repository. We're now going to take a look at how we can work on multiple branches within our Git repository in TFS.
