The Thirsty Developer is on the air with the inaugural episode of the new podcast series.  For this episode, we traveled to Madison, WI to interview Adam Salvo, who is a lead developer with Terso Solutions. We talked with Adam about their recent migration to Visual Studio 2008 and Team Foundation Server 2008.  They were early adopters of VS 2008 / TFS under the "go live" provision of the Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 EULA.  We will hear about the features in Visual Studio 2008 that attracted them to an early adoption.

Terso Solutions builds and manages intelligent enclosures (which are cabinets and refrigeration units) that hold medical supplies used in hospitals and research labs.  In addition to the hardware devices themselves, Terso has a software back end infrastructure that is created with BizTalk Server, Windows Servers and customer .NET
