VisualStudioLogo Susan Ibach and Christopher Harrison present new features in Visual Studio 2013 on Microsoft Virtual Academy.

I’ve been blogging about different Visual Studio features on GoDevMental, so when the opportunity came along to do a presentation to highlight some of the great new features in Visual Studio 2013, I couldn’t resist. I love sharing great tips on how to get the most out of Visual Studio.
