Using Team Foundation to Manage Development Processes
If you are a software developer who uses Visual Studio 2010 Professional and your team is using Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010, you have access to features that can help you and your team improve quality and performance, improve predictability of the development process, and reduce the overall cost of team development.
If you use Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate or Visual Studio 2010 Premium you have an even more extensive set of features. For more information about which features are available in the different editions of Visual Studio 2010, see Application Lifecycle Management Features in Visual Studio 2010.

Protect your nightly build
Build breaks can prevent your team from making progress while you diagnose and correct the problem. You can define a gated check-in build definition to protect some or all of your codebase against build breaks. For more information see:
