Thanks to all of you that spent your day with us in NY and NJ at our Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Events.  I hope you found the sessions valuable. 


Here are links to the virtual environment that we used in the demos.  These VMs contain Beta 2 versions of VS 2010 Ultimate [which contains the testing tools] and TFS 2010.  Everything is fully configured and ready to use.  These images will expire on April 9th, 2010.

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 (Hyper-V)

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 (Windows [7] Virtual PC)

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 (Virtual PC 2007 SP1)


Here are the decks and supplemental links for each of session topics:

  1. Lap Around Visual Studio
  2. Agile Project Management
  3. No More No Repro
  4. Architecture for Everyone 

Feel free to contact our keynote speaker, Tim Huckaby, for more information about the great technology and scenarios he previewed.

Currently VS 2010 is in Beta 2. Within the next few weeks, a Release Candidate will be available.  And on April 12th, VS 2010, TFS 2010 and .NET 4 will be released.

So now is a good time to think about moving to VS 2010.  There’s a lot of new capabilities that will help you deliver better software, so why wait?  Try the betas now and start planning your move.  The future is here…now.  :-)
