  • Blog Post: My History of Visual Studio (Epilog)

    Visual Studio 2010 Launched on Monday . Wow! It’s HUGE. A major round of congratulations are in order for everyone involved, not just on the Visual Studio team but also on the Frameworks team and the supporting teams and of course the customers whose feedback was so vital to the success of the product...
  • Blog Post: My History of Visual Studio (Part 10, final)

    [All the other Parts: History of Visual Studio ] [Visit the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 Beta web site for the latest info] Visual Studio 2008 Winds Down, Visual Studio 2010 Begins Just as things were starting to wind down on VS2008, I got a new assignment. I was going to...
  • Blog Post: My History of Visual Studio (Part 9)

    [All the other Parts: History of Visual Studio ] In the last posting I talked about the “Whidbey” release, VS2005, but I feel like I left out two really important aspects so I’d like to start this part by rewinding a bit for those two topics. I had mentioned in Part 7 that some...
  • Blog Post: My History of Visual Studio (Part 8)

    [All the other Parts: History of Visual Studio ] I can’t really talk about what was going on in the IDE without covering what was happening in the runtime because their fates are so intertwined, so even though it’s off topic a little bit, allow me to cover some details from Framework 2...
  • Blog Post: My History of Visual Studio (Part 7)

    [All the other Parts: History of Visual Studio ] [I know I promised to talk about “Whidbey” in this installment but I realized I needed a bridge to get there or else I’d totally skip over “Everett” – so this is that bridge.] In MSN the arrival of the .NET Framework...
  • Blog Post: My History of Visual Studio (Part 6)

    [All the other Parts: History of Visual Studio ] The years 1998 to 2002 were very busy ones in the Developer Division. I’ve previously written about “Dolphin” and I tried to give a sense of exactly how much changed during the Dolphin release and the sheer volume of work it required...
  • Blog Post: My History of Visual Studio (Part 5)

    [All the other Parts: History of Visual Studio ] We’re still on the part of the story where I was off working in MSN which means all I can give you are the first- and second-hand stories that I’ve heard over the years. So I guess that makes them second- and third- hand to you. This would...
  • Blog Post: My History of Visual Studio (Part 4)

    [All the other Parts: History of Visual Studio ] I didn’t really intend to write one of these per day but here it is day 4 and we’re still going strong. I’d like to take a moment to thank the many people who commented on this series either here, or on their own blogs, or elsewhere...
  • Blog Post: My History of Visual Studio (Part 3)

    [All the other Parts: History of Visual Studio ] I was going to go forward again in this installment but I got some requests to talk about some older things again before I did that. You might be getting bored of the distant past so I’ll try to keep that part short. There were some other key...
  • Blog Post: My History of Visual Studio (Part 2)

    [All the other Parts: History of Visual Studio ] Visual C++ 2.0, “Dolphin” was a very ambitious release. We were really happy with VC1 but there were quite a few things that were entirely unsatisfactory. One of them, maybe the most important, was the fact that window management in the...
  • Blog Post: My History of Visual Studio (Part 1)

    [All the other Parts: History of Visual Studio ] I wrote in the teaser that there is no one “History of Visual Studio”, there are as many histories as there were people involved. If I may repurpose a famous quote, “There are eight million stories in the Naked City...” This...
  • Blog Post: The Visual Studio Documentary on Channel 9

    This is just great fun! And, of course, The Documentary is all wrong because they left out many of my favorite parts *grin*. OK, seriously, there is no one history of Visual Studio because of course there is a history for every person that was involved, the ones here at Microsoft and the many partners...
