Microsoft to acquire GitHub for $7.5 billion
When we checked Microsoft cloud website Azure today, we saw a title “Microsoft + GitHub” and we immediately realized there should have been a big news happened.
Visual Studio Code Does NOT Come With Git Installation by Default
When we use Visual Studio 2015 or 2017, we see the Git feature is provided by default. At least, we do not need to install Git separately, Git can be installed with Visual Studio together. When new cross platform supported Visual Studio Code came, we thought it will come with Git together by default. But actually it is NOT. At least, in current newest version 1.19.3.
Load Project to Visual Studio Online Git Service Using Visual Studio 2015
I realized it was some different when I loaded local project to Visual Studio Online in Visual Studio 2015 compared with using Visual Studio 2013.
Visual Studio Online Supports Agile Development
I was involved in CMM development management system in a IT giant company before, I am not sure whether the CMM name is still called CMM, but I personally felt the CMM management was really good for big company. But for some small businesses, if they want to provide faster response to customers (actually this should be the best method which a small business can use, which could compete with any bigger company ), for example, customer needs a running system urgently, or they need a real solution for fixing some problems quickly, development team can provide them a light-weight version earlier, during customer uses the earlier version, developers can keep on adding new features, making existing features stronger, and fixing bugs “on the fly”, this kind of development could be called as Agile development management.
Microsoft put over 850 Projects on GitHub
You might not believe it: Microsoft has over 850+ projects on GitHub. You know, all are open sourced.
Visual Studio Online Service Down Today
This is the first time I meet Microsoft Visual Studio Online Service down, I could not connect to my VS Online Projects, they might call it is User Hub. Some of my source code are on VS Online.
Using Git Tag for Visual Studio Projects
Visual Studio 2013 does not provide Git Tag function before Update 2, current the Visual Studio 2013 update 2 is still not formally released but just a RC release, so there are lots of developers are still using old Visual Studio 2013, which can not add git tag using Visual Studio 2013 directly.
Remove TFS or Git Account Information from Visual Studio 2013
Sometimes we used other people’s computers to write code, and we set our own TFS or Git account information to download or upload our code. so before we leave, we should remove our TFS (Team Foundation Server ) or Git account information from that computer.
Connect to existing Visual Studio Online Project
If your friend or team member invites you to join his project which is on Visual Studio Online, you will connect his online project using Visual Studio 2013.
An error was raised by libgit2. Category = Net (Error)
We used Visual Studio 2013 and Git source control to connect Visual Studio Online, see previous blog here.
Add Local Project to Visual Studio Online
Visual Studio Online is actually formally called Team Foundation Server. But it is kind of cloud system, and there should be different features compared with team foundation server system.
