  • Blog Post: The effect of Updates

  • Blog Post: TFS 2013.2 (Update 2) Released

  • Blog Post: Launching Visual Studio 2013

    Today, I am in New York at the launch of Visual Studio 2013 speaking with a local audience and broadcasting around the world.  In many ways it’s a celebration of the blood, sweat and tears we put into VS 2013.  At the same time, it’s a bit anti-climactic because VS 2013 has been in preview...
