Wow, we disclosed all the new features of SharePoint 2010 yesterday at the SharePoint Conference. I spent my day rehearsing my demos, then sitting in the front row of the keynote, then giving my talk, then standing at the SharePoint booth in the exhibit hall, then at a function for SharePoint MVPs. I didn’t go running in the morning like Steve Ballmer did.
Microsoft is making a significant investment for Developers in SharePoint 2010 and you will see it’s much more a focus than before. Here are some of the places you can read about developer information for SharePoint 2010.
