HanselminutesMy twenty-first Podcast is up. This episode is some off-the-cuff, on the show floor interviews from TechEd 2006 this year in Boston! Thanks to John Lam, Patrick Cauldwell, Jeff Atwood, Shy Cohen, and everyone else that I hung out with and met at this year's conference!

NEW COUPON CODE EXCLUSIVELY FOR HANSELMINUTES LISTENERS: The folks at XCeed are giving Hanselminutes listeners that is Coupon Code "hm-20-20." It'll work on their online shop or over the phone. This is an amazing deal, and I encourage you to check our their stuff. The coupon is good for 20% off any component or suite, with or without subscription, for 1 developer all the way up to a site license.

Our sponsors are XCeed, CodeSmith Tools, PeterBlum and the .NET Dev Journal. There's a $100 off CodeSmith coupon for Hanselminutes listeners - it's coupon code HM100. Spread the word, now's the time to buy.

As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)

  • The basic MP3 feed is here, and the iPod friendly one is here. There's a number of other ways you can get it (streaming, straight download, etc) that are all up on the site just below the fold. I use iTunes, myself, to listen to most podcasts, but I also use FeedDemon and it's built in support.
  • Note that for now, because of bandwidth constraints, the feeds always have just the current show. If you want to get an old show (and because many Podcasting Clients aren't smart enough to not download the file more than once) you can always find them at
  • I have, and will, also include the enclosures to this feed you're reading, so if you're already subscribed to ComputerZen and you're not interested in cluttering your life with another feed, you have the choice to get the 'cast as well.
  • If there's a topic you'd like to hear, perhaps one that is better spoken than presented on a blog, or a great tool you can't live without, contact me and I'll get it in the queue!

Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?

Your guests indicated that Team Foundation Server is not a cost effective upgrade from Visual SourceSafe if you are not using other features of TFS.

I disagree.

We have been using Team Foundation Server as a replacement for Visual SourceSafe for the past 3 months. It turns out for a medium size group of developers, the additional cost over Visual SourceSafe is not significant.
The only cost difference between VSS and TFS licenses is the cost of the server which becomes less significant as the size of the team grows.

If you can't afford Visual Studio Team Edition, then consider buying the Visual Studio Professional Edition and additional TFS licenses.

We feel that TFS offers significant performance and reliability benefits over Visual SourceSafe, especially for larger projects. Users already familiar with VSS should have no trouble migrating to the new product.
