Yes, you read that correctly… “an obsolete Visual Studio 2012!”  Now that is a little overstated… The Visual Studio that was released last year is far from obsolete, but it is no longer the latest and greatest.  Since it was released for general availability, the Visual Studio and TFS teams have been working to continue to improve the product, and they’ve been making the new stuff available for you!  Since the initial production release of Visual Studio 2012, Microsoft has already released TWO production updates.  Update 1 and Update 2 were released in approximately three month intervals and include not only fixes but also some great new features.

In addition, Brian Harry announced last week that the Update 3 preview is now available for download as well:

If you want to hear more, join my counterpart Jason Singh, as he provides and overview of the great new feature in these updates.  The presentation will be on May 29th and there is a drawing for the attendees.  Check it out:









The Visual Studio Team has moved into a quarterly update model, which provides users the opportunity to take advantage of new features sooner than in previous release milestones.

This tour of new features webcast will cover the following topics:

  • New Agile Planning
  • Development
  • Quality Enablement
  • SharePoint Development
  • TFS Enhancements
  • Developer Experience

We’re excited to showcase these new features. Plus, we’re giving away one (1) brand new Jawbone JAMBOX Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, valued over $150! We hope you can join us!
