Reviews for this release

I recommend this guide highly for those who want to learn more about successful branching strategies while using TFS. And the included PowerPoint branching diagrams make a great template from which to create your own branching diagrams.

Great review. So much knowledge and past experience in these documents. I could read this for weeks. Ignore the folks with technical difficulties. The ratings are for the documents themselves. If you have problems with downloading the documents, I'd suggest you ask someone with computer knowledge.

Having trouble downloading the zip. It gets to the about 6.5MB mark and then server resets connection and the download is aborted. Why is this happening?

This guidance was tremendously useful. I could not have moved to TFS from ClearCase without it. Hats off to all the people that worked on this! This was awesome!

Many people still struggle with this despite the excellent guidance and the excellent tool integration, so I have attempted a demo at: http://blogs.us.sogeti.com/ericswanson/2010/09/07/effective-branching-and-merging-in-tfs-2010/

Really Helpful! Thanks. Just what i was searching. But not so easy to find.

Great help to beginners who have never used the branching/merging logic before. Thanks!
