After the announcements of the availability of Windows 7 RC and Windows Server 2008 R2 RC, it’s now time for the Beta1 of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0.

In order to learn how to utilize Visual Studio 2010 features and .NET 4.0 technologies, a new version of the Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 Training Kit has also been released. This Kit includes presentations, hands-on labs and demos.

If you need to submit feedback, the Beta1 Forum is the right place for you; if you want to report bugs, then go to the following Connect page.

Here some of my favorite resource starting pages:

·         .NET Framework 4 Beta 1 documentation (preview)

·         Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 documentation (preview)

·         Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 Beta 1 Walkthroughs

Have fun with VS2010!
