The 1-day conference comprises developer-oriented technical sessions, featuring an early look at the Next Version of Visual Studio (code name “Orcas”).  With Visual Studio 2005 and the .NET Framework Version 2.0 & 3.0, Microsoft has introduced a new level of software development capabilities for .NET developers, making it easier to:
