Video Description

Learn how to use Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC)

About This Video

  • Learn about version control concepts
  • Use TFVC tooling to work with the source code
  • Branch and merge the concepts and activities after configuring the enviornment

In Detail

Version control helps you to track the changes you make in your code over time by taking a snapshot of each file when you edit the code. However,this phenomenon had limitations, as the team members only have one version of each file on their dev machines. TFVC is a centralized version control system that helps you to monitor changes and identify which team member checked into the Team Foundation Server. Using various functionalities such as compare and annotate, we can easily identify changes made by the team members.

In this course, we’ll dive into version control using Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC). Having a tool like TFVC is just the start of effective source code management. Understanding the concepts behind version control will really empower you to use the tool more effectively. Version control is more than just using a tool and understanding its concepts. The tool needs to be configured correctly so that you get the most out of it. We’ll show you how to configure your environment to work more effectively. Lastly, branching and merging are the mainstays in many version control systems. Understanding which branching strategy to use can be difficult. We’ll shed light on various branching strategies, and show you how to implement a strategy in TFVC.

Lastly, we will learn about the branching strategy to work in an organization. Later, we will see how to use it, tracking the changes and merging the changes.
