Administering Team Foundation Build

As an administrator for Team Foundation Build, you can configure and manage Team Foundation Build Service to enable your team to automatically and consistently build, test, and deploy your software in a distributed environment. You can install the build service and enable it to build projects that are under version control in your team project. Then you can create and manage build controllers, which handle requests for queued builds, and build agents, which handle the work of building, testing, and deploying your application.
