comment Visual Studio and Release Manager
Hmm, interesting. I'll have to give that a shot. Do you use an on premises build server with that, or is rm able to retrieve the binaries from hosted build?

@MrHinsh How? I have validated several times that it doesn't work.

comment VSO and multiple projects for a single product team
Correct -- you can assign security permissions at the folder level for the teams. Or (although this is a major change that should not be undertaken lightly) you can use Git and set up multiple repositories, one repo per application, then set repo-level security.

comment How to get build logs, while PowerShell build script is running with TfvcTemplate12.xaml?
You're not going to be able to get real time output. That's not how TFS XAML builds work. TFS 2015 will have a new build system that does exactly what you're after, though. It's worth checking out.

comment ordered test on TFS 2012 build
It's worth noting that ordered tests are generally not a good idea -- if you're running unit or integration tests, those tests should be runnable in any order. A test that depends on the state of a previous test has too many reasons to fail to be a useful indicator of code correctness.

comment Configure TFS 2012 to Build All Solutions Under Directory
I strongly, strongly recommend not modifying build process templates. They are nearly impossible to debug, maintain, and upgrade. It's awful.

Try /p:VisualStudioVersion=14.0 as the MSBuild arguments.

That's an answer to about 1/5th of the question. :)

comment Use TFS like File History?
I'm getting the impression that you don't have a lot of experience with source control. Source control is "file history". Use real source control. Even if you think it's overkill for what you're doing (it really isn't), it's an industry standard practice and will be useful for the day you become a not-so-solo developer. Not being familiar with source control could potentially cost you jobs down the line. It's like saying that you're a carpenter, but you're not familiar with how hammers work.

comment Impact of adding dll reference vs project reference
Don't do binary references without using NuGet. The concerns everyone else raised about binary references are 100% valid.

comment MS unit test ( to verify 100 simultaneous requests to server )
You can't test that concurrency issues don't occur, you can only discover that they do.
