Tonight I’m going to give a preview of my Visual Studio 2010 launch demo on the new SharePoint development tools in Visual Studio 2010 including some Office client tools. This is basically the talk I did at TechDays in Belgium but much more focused on the Visual Studio developer who is just starting to learn about SharePoint development. After I show off the tools for about an hour Peter is going to get up and demonstrate some real world examples of SharePoint customizations that you can build with VS2010. It should be a great show!
