How MSIT Does Development

MSIT is our internal IT department at Microsoft. I’ve had alot of interest generated from all the talks about their development process, and several people have asked me if we have any whitepapers with further details.


I checked in with MSIT, and they have written quite a bit of contenton their experience with Visual Studio Team System. I liked this whitepaper here, titled “Using Visual Studio 2008 to Improve Software Development: Deploying VSTS 2008 Team Foundation Server at Microsoft.

Barbara Yamauchi who is the primary contact for all our dealings with MSIT passed along a ton of other resources as well. I’ve included them here in case they’re useful for you.
