LightSwitch Working together RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am new to LightSwitch and want to work together with a team inside a LightSwitch project.

    However what do I need in order to work together into a project. At this moment only one person works with, but this is not a complete solution for us. I need a way to work together as a team. I have heard of TFS, but what do I need to install to get this fixed. Is there any manual or tutorial?

    Thanks.

    Kind regards,

    Umit

  • If you are quick you can get Team Foundation server for free from Team Foundation Service. You and your team will need a Windows Live account in order to access it which, if you have a hotmail account is all ok.

    There is quite a good walkthrough here Walkthrough: Creating a New Team Project with most of the facts you need to know here Team Foundation Walkthroughs

    The best thing I could recommend is to sign up for the free one and just trial it. The more you use it the easier it will get.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for the solutions. I am currently helping a University for students with some help of teachers and a system engineer. LightSwitch is being used as a 4GL development software for school projects.

    I have now currently installed Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008 R2 and Team Foundation Server 2010 on a server at the University. After some configurations I have got working!

    The Clients are configured with VS 2010 or VS 2012 with Team Explorer + LightSwitch 2011

    It works well with 2 developers/clients at this moment. I am going to test this Friday for 5+ LightSwitch Clients with TFS to see it works well for more developers at the same time.

    Thank you guys! It all (links and tutorials) helped me out. Sorry for the late answer.
    I am currently also testing the 0t1's link, however the University does have the required licenses for all services/servers.

    Thanks again and wish you all a very happy new year!
