While the various Visual Studio teams are working on our first beta release, I thought I’d point out some important resources to learn more about what we’re doing.  First is the new weekly video podcast series known as 10-4.  This has been going on for a few months now but I finally figured out where the name came from…I just couldn’t get past the CB phrase that was so popular when I was growing up.  I now get that it’s a clever combination of VSTS 2010 and NetFx 4.   Duh!  I guess I’ve been triaging a few too many bugs recently.  :-) Anyway, Brian Keller and crew have done a great job making this information very accessible and interesting along the way.  Here’s a quick list of the podcasts posted to date:

The other recent activity in this space is Brian Harry’s new series on VSTS 2010 which he started this week: Team System 2010 Overview.  If you haven’t already subscribed to his blog, I’d certainly recommend it.  Brian’s always got interesting things to say.
