Hi all

Well I am now Married and have returned to the office and have been getting back into the swing of things. The first few weeks back were crazy as we had a number of internal Microsoft conferences to support in orlando and Seattle, but not as crazy as for my wife who 3 days after the honeymoon was over had to head to London for a training course.

Anyway, I am back and we are heads down getting ready for launch at the end of the year. The product is coming together really well and I hope you have had a chance to play with it. if not then you can get CTP 4 at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=C2FFA0E9-B68E-4411-9C90-14697AC8FB95&displaylang=en and look for CTP 5 later this month from the same location.

We have also started into a set of webcasts. The first is available from

We are currently hard at work on a set of videos of the product which we will post to the team center along with a set of hosted labs (both virtual and available on DVD as a VPC image) to allow you to get up to speed without the need to install the product. Loook for these in mid september and remember to keep checking the Team Center (http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/teamsystem/dbpro/) and our blogs for more information

 

Have fun and I will post again soon
