I'm happy to announce that I just agreed to give the keynote for the Development Tools Ecosystem Summit next month here in Redmond.  The Development Tools Ecosystem Summit, from October 19th – 23rd, is our annual conference open to all developers for us to share the new opportunities available to extend the Visual Studio Platform.  I had a lot of fun with the keynote last year, the Q&A was absolutely fabulous.

 

This year’s conference will bring a full agenda of new content around extending Visual Studio 2010 covering the basics of what’s extensible in Visual Studio as well as deep dive topics such as how to integrate a new language into VS.  We’ll also cover VSTS, DSL, SharePoint Tools, and Expression Blend extensibility.  This is a great place to learn about the future of the Visual Studio Platform!

 

The conference is a weeklong event with the first two days of technical training (10/19 & 10/20) open to all developers; for FREE.  The rest of the week continues into the VSIP partner summit for companies who are members of the VSIP program.  Aside from the technical content we’ll also provide meals during the day; mixer events; and a copy of Keyvan Nayyeri’s “Professional Visual Studio Extensibility”.

Hope to see you there
