A series of videos from the Microsoft Beta training program is now available on TeamSystemRocks.com. These are longer than the original tutorial videos but have a lot of information about Team System as well as demos. To watch them, go here.
NOTE: I intend to move my blog to the TeamSystemRocks site soon, in the mean time I will be adding my posts to both blogs. If you are subscribed to my blog, thank you, you may want to change your subscription to that other one: http://teamsystemrocks.com/blogs/omarv/rss.aspx
I figured I could do better than my previous blog entry and actually make the source available as a Visual Studio project so I just posted the source code for the Team Build command line tool in TeamSystemRocks.com. See my post in the Team Build Extensibility forum to get to the file... And thanks to Aaron Engel for posting that code as a workaround.
Since I blog primarily about Team System, I intend to move my blog to TeamSystemRocks.com so I will be cross posting here for a while.
In the Beta 2 release of Team System you can only launch Team Builds from the Visual Studio IDE. The SDK has some sample code that uses the API, which I haven't tested, if you have and it works, your sample will be appreciated on this site. The solution I implemented was the workaround from the link below, the only problem with that code is that the values it sets for the properties are not correct in Beta 2 (maybe it was released prior to Beta 2), I made it work by assigning the name of the Build Type I want to run to the ConfigName property, instead of the portfolioProject string, that is the only change needed for this code to run:

http://teamsystemrocks.com is up and running. A web site for the Team System community to share code and knowledge, so far you can find Forums, A 'Team System News' blog and several short but good Team System tutorial videos under the 'Tutorials' tab.
For history, credits and upcoming features on the Team System Rocks site, see Chris' blog entry.
