TDS Classic (Team Development for Sitecore Classic), a Microsoft Visual Studio Plugin, brings Sitecore items into Visual Studio while reducing developer’s deployment time to almost zero.
By using TDS Classic, developers can improve control and overall team performance by integrating Source Code Control into Sitecore and Visual Studio projects.
TDS Classic allows new developers to be easily added to a project. New developers can get the most recent updates from the Source Code Control and begin making updates to the project almost immediately. TDS Classic eliminates the need for manually tracking item changes for deployment, since all changes are automatically tracked by source control. TDS Classic features continuous builds and fully automated deployment releases. TDS Classic allows Sitecore items to be moved in and out of a Sitecore instance within Microsoft Visual Studio. TDS Classic helps keep track of changes by allowing the developer to quickly compare their project items to their developer instance of Sitecore. Because of all this, TDS Classic significantly increases the ability for developers to work in teams, and saves time, money, and a good deal of frustration in the long run.
