A group blog from members of the VB team
It was a very exciting time this week, with the launch of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4. On April 12th, 5 launch events took place around the world in Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Bangalore, London and Las Vegas. The video from Bob Muglia’s VS 2010 Launch keynote is now available on-demand.
The agenda for day was VS 2010 sessions, including Windows Development, SharePoint and Office, Dev & Test Collaboration, and Project Management. Follow the “Visual Studio 2010 Launch” tag on Channel9 for more… There are also a number of session recordings available now on The Code Project. Tim, Alexandra, and I recorded a live Channel 9 interview on managed code.
At the Las Vegas launch event, there were many VB keynote and session demos, as well as two Languages-focused sessions covering Visual Basic :
- VNT03: What’s New in Visual C# 4.0 and Visual Basic 10? (April 13, 10:15AM-11:30AM, Grand Ballroom 5, Kathleen Dollard)
- VMS10: Microsoft Visual Basic and C# IDE Tips and Tricks (April 13, 4:15PM-5:15AM, Grand Ballroom 5, Dustin Campbell)
