Developers, we’re pleased to announce another free offering: Moving to Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 (Microsoft Press, 2011; 336 pages), written by Patrice Pelland, Pascal Paré, and Ken Haines.
Here’s a little bit about the authors: Ken Haines is a software development engineer at Microsoft, working in the Consumer and Online Division. He has a passion for distributed applications in the cloud and strives to help customers and partners find the right solution for their needs. Pascal Paré has worked at Microsoft since 2006, where he has held positions as a software engineer on both development and testing teams. Patrice Pelland is a principal development manager at Microsoft, working in the Consumer and Online Division. He leads a development team that is focused on innovation and incubation across all Microsoft consumer products.
Moving to Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 was written with three audiences in mind:
Part I is for developers moving from Visual Studio 2003 to Visual Studio 2010.
Part II is for developers moving from Visual Studio 2005.
And Part III is for developers moving from Visual Studio 2008.!--endfragment-->

The folks associated with the Microsoft family of enterprises continually show respect for their roots as a company who developed for developers - continuing to give back to the development community. I thank you for the book and for the 30+ years of continued support sometimes above and beyond the call of duty, and usually over and above the industry standards and practices.
Just another "Thank You" for this great gift
Thank you very much. I really appreciate this effort.
Thank you very much.
This book has really encouraged me to move from Visual Studio 2005 to 2010 and made it not so daunting a task. Had this book been around for Visual Studio 2008, I may have upgraded earlier. This is a very smart move on behalf of Microsoft. I'm impressed.
Thanks I AM SURE IT HELP
Once again -- very pleasant.
First it was LINQ and now it's introductory material for VS 2010 migration.
Thanx! It does help!
