So chapter 1 is an extremely short one which is a short intro into what TFS is and brief feature explanations.
There are 2 tiers in which TFS is comprised of:
Application, where the client machines communicate via web-service based protocols & web server access
Data, where made up of SQL containing the logic behind the TFS application, and the data for the TFS instance
There’s a Virtual Machine you can download that includes everything necessary to start demoing and evaluation Visual Studio 2012 & TFS2012 @ http://aka.ms/VS2012VirtualMachine (I thought that was pretty nifty). A free condensed version of TFS, called TFS Express, is also available at http://aka.ms/TFS2012Express.
and that’s all for Chapter 1
