Looks like the first iteration of MSDN documentation for the TFS 2010 SDK is available here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb130146.aspx

This page says: "Here, you will find the samples for the Team Foundation Server SDK (samples are no longer included with the Visual Studio SDK)." My question is, Is there such a thing as the TFS SDK, is it downloadable, and if so, where can I get it? Is the TFS SDK part of the VS SDK?
This stuff is impenetrable, unless one already understands exactly how everything is packaged. I want to be able to build an app that creates a workitem in TFS. What do I need to download and install in order to make that possible?
This is maddening!
I just installed the VS SDK, and I get all sorts of "extending Visual Studio" DLLs, I suppose for extending the VS UI. But nothing that enables interacting with TFS, as far as I can tell.

Where is the actual download link of the SDK? Am I blind?

It appears you the TFS SDK is built-in. Adding something like this: using Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client; using Microsoft.TeamFoundation.VersionControl.Client; So, I would say there is no TFS 2010 SDK. You just need to figure out how to put this page to work: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb130146.aspx

You need to install Team Explorer even if you installed VSTS 2010 Ultimate. Only then will the files be there... took me a lot of digging to figure that out because I thought I already had everything.

Im having trouble using the IEventService from the Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Server namespace in Microsoft.TeamFondation.dll for 2010. According to the Object Explorer, the interface does not exist. There are a few TFS2010 pages with references to it. How should we be programmatically subscribing to events? I have TFS fully installed on my client, adn I have full access to the server. Ideas?
