This week, we welcomed developers from around the world to our campus in Redmond to take part in our annual ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) Summit. While the three day event covers a lot of ground, from DevOps to testing, we wanted to highlight some particularly good news from Microsoft Technical Fellow, Brian Harry, who announced that Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server and Team Foundation Service (TFS) now supports Git, the version control system used by a growing number of open source initiatives and projects. He also revealed that a plugin for Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 (VS) is available to enable Git support.

As Brian mentioned in his own blog about the news, this is a “big milestone for us” and a major step forward for Microsoft as we continue to highlight the interoperability and openness opportunities that exist between us and OSS companies and communities. To learn about more the specific details behind the support for Git across TFS and VS, check out the Channel 9 video below, as well as the update from Gianugo Rabellino and the Microsoft Open Technologies team. And let us know what other projects you’d like to see Microsoft take part in, via the comments below.
