A group blog from members of the VB team
The VB team has two great sessions coming up on Wednesday June 4th, covering tips & tricks for the language and IDE. Abstracts are below. Hope to see you there!

(not relating to this post specifically - but VB at TechEd overall):
Very poor showing by the vb folks at TechEd - pretty much made me feel like I was wasting my time with vb. A lonely vb sheep in a huge flock of eager c#ers. Was this all vb had to offer - 2 out of 600 sessions?
BTW - this isn't a comment on the quality of these sessions mentioned, just that I'd hoped for more vb stuff in general. All the hands on labs were c# only.
Generally - I like vb, but it appears to be falling far behind in terms of representation, which is important to drive interest.
I know the framework is more important than the language, but still... :'(
