What is Team Foundation Server?
Collaboration tools for the entire team
Team Foundation Server provides a set of collaboration tools that work with your existing IDE or editor, so your team can work effectively on software projects of all shapes and sizes.
Unlimited, private, secure
Store and collaborate on code with unlimited private repositories. Use Git for distributed version control to maximize collaboration or use Team Foundation version control (TFVC) for centralized version control. Collaborate on code easily with pull requests and code reviews, while defining and managing permissions to secure your repositories.
Tools for agile teams
Kanban, Scrum, dashboards
Be agile, on your terms. Capture, prioritize, and track work with backlogs and customizable Kanban boards. Work items link directly to code to ensure transparency, and can be used to build rich dashboards for easy reporting.
Build, validate, deploy
Catch quality issues early with continuous integration (CI) builds that compile and test your application automatically after any code change. Use continuous delivery to automatically deploy applications or websites that pass tests or model your release pipelines to match your existing release processes.
Languages and tools
Eclipse, Xcode, and more
Use your favorite language and development tool. Version control supports any language, as well as any Git client (including Xcode). Java teams can access code and work items through a free plugin for Eclipse – and run continuous integration builds based on config files from Ant or Mavin.
Open and extensible
We make it easy to integrate your custom tool or third-party service with Team Foundation Server using open standards like REST APIs and OAuth 2.0. We also support a set of ready-made integrations that can be easily configured from your account dashboard.
Team Foundation Server Express
Free for individuals and small teams
Team Foundation Server Express is perfect for individual developers and small teams of five or less. It’s free and you can easily install it on your personal desktop or laptop without needing a dedicated server. When your team has grown beyond five team members, you can upgrade to Team Foundation Server and take your full history with you.
