On November 12th, we'll be hosting an online developer event called Connect();.  Connect(); will be a chance to have a conversation with developers about what’s coming next for developer tools, developer services and application platforms across Microsoft.  Check out the Connect(); event page for the agenda and other details.   
Connect(); builds upon where we’ve been, and the work we’ve been doing over the last year.  As we prepare for next month’s event, I thought I would share a recap of some
of the highlights from the last year.

It’s time!  The Release Candidate of Visual Studio 2013.4 and Team Foundation Server 2013.4 is here. Download Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 RC Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 KB article I’ve written some posts about the CTPs along the way.  But I’ll give a high-level recap of the ALM improvements and talk about a few of the new things showing up in this RC. Work item tracking and Agile project management improvements – This update includes a ton of “smallish” improvements to work item tracking.  Things like
