There are a couple of great developer events coming up in Edinburgh. Along with my colleagues I've helped to design the user experiences around our Windows 8 and ALM tools. I'll be attending both events and would love to hear your feedback about what we've done in Visual Studio 11.

 

Windows 8 For Application Developers

In this event, we’ll deliver developer-level, demo-driven sessions that give you an accelerated entry into what it means to design, develop and publish exciting, modern, polished, world-ready applications for next-generation devices running Windows 8.
