One problem I find since I started using TFS is I don’t focus on one bug, I often solve several at a time sometimes interconnected sometimes not, often down to which one I feel like fixing as that, for me, yields better results. However its not always the best way, especially when working with others. Most of the time I don’t play with others so it works for me.
But I have to train myself to use this thing (TFS) better and part of that is pick a bug/task and stick to it.
So I came up with the simplest of things to help with this. Visual Studio windows.
Simply pick the bug your working on select the code and create a new horizontal tab group and drag it to the top till you only see the tile of the task in yellow.
Simple but effective, well not that effective cos here I am blogging it instead of coding.
