A Call to Action: Feedback Needed!

One of the best parts of being involved in the Visual Studio ALM Rangers is giving (and receiving) feedback from the field in relation to solutions that have been released, are in flight, or are mere glimmers waiting to be started.  Yet another is being able to reach out to other colleagues to request the same level of feedback!
Please see the links below, which are chock full of great content.  Your feedback, ratings and general enthusiasm around these and other Rangers projects help to keep the community going and gives those of us working on these solutions some great ways to make things better for everyone.

Migrating TFS to VSO: A Whitepaper Walkthrough

Recently I was fortunate enough to work with some fellow Visual Studio ALM Rangers on a whitepaper detailing the migration of an on-premises Team Foundation Server (TFS) instance to Visual Studio Online (VSO). It’s a good read and the team did a great job putting the narrative together so that it’s easy to follow along. Check it out here: TFS to VSO Migration Walkthrough
Candid feedback is welcome!
