So you've downloaded the final version of Visual Studio 2005 from MSDN subscriber downloads (or got a free copy from attending a launch event). What's the best way to get up to speed quickly? How about some short - 10 to 20 minute - videos that walk you through some of the new features?
Produced by my excellent and very smart colleagues in DPE UK, here is my pick of the so-called "nuggets" that do just that:
New IDE Features in VS2005
Debugger Features in Visual Studio 2005
ASP.NET 2.0 Master Pages
More ASP.NET 2.0 Master Pages
The Class Designer in Visual Studio 2005
Generics in .NET Framework 2.0
Iterators in C# V2.0
Using the new gridview control
Control Layout in Windows Forms in VS 2005
There are more of these kind of tutorials at http://www.microsoft.com/uk/msdn/events/nuggets.aspx. You can also watch streaming versions of the above nuggets from the same link.
