Visual Studio Team Services

Cloud collaboration tools for teams

It’s not an IDE, it’s everything else. Visual Studio Team Services provides a set of cloud-powered collaboration tools that work with your existing IDE or editor, so your team can work effectively on software projects of all shapes and sizes.

What are Visual Studio Team Services?

Version control

Git, private, unlimited

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.

Agile tools

Continuous integration

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.

Continuous integration

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 free plugins for Eclipse and IntelliJ – and run continuous integration builds based on config files from Ant or Maven.
