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-->

Thanks for the free ebooks that keep coming out, but I'd like to make a request as I find it hard to read PDF/XPS documents. Would it be possible to have future releases in either *.mobi or *.epub format so they are usable on a dedicated electronic reading device and more likely to be read? Thanks again!
What a great gift and business plan for Microsoft. This is the best way to get everyone on board.
Thank you so much for the gift. Will make the most of it. Again, thank you.
