Connecting to Team Foundation Server/Visual Studio Online using Visual Studio

As a consultant, I often end up working with teams which have not used Team Foundation Server or Visual Studio Online before and therefore end up training them on how to connect to TFS/VSO using Visual Studio.

Since I do this often enough from project to project, I thought I would finally write a blog on how to do this!

First of all, Microsoft has already written 2 articles on just how to do this:

Connect to Visual Studio Team Services from Eclipse, Xcode, Visual Studio, and more

Connect to team projects

This article also addresses how to connect using Visual Studio 2013, but this still applies to Visual Studio 2015:

One of the easiest methods the above article does not mention is connection from the Team menu!

From there, all the steps remain the same!  That is really all there is to it!
