I have started to work on a Quick Guide for the “Microsoft Test And Lab Management” after a lot of users that likes to understand and try the tool.
The quick guide is posted in my personal blog here and will be spread on a few posts where the first one is published here.
There is also an introduction post here that can give a good idea on what this tool can do.
The quick guide will be published in the “Team System Guides” codeplex site here when finished, I will post on that too.
I am happy to announce a new Codeplex project that gathers Team System guides both for Team System 2008 and for Team System 2010.
You can see the site here.
All guides are in word or PDF formats so you can download and print them.
There is a great MSDN site that gathers all the information and feedbacks for the Team System 2010 and the .NET Framework 4 Beta 1 version.
You can get all the downloads, installations instructions, walkthroughs and more all in this site.
you can find the site in the following URL: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/dd582936.aspx
