The official source of product insight from the Visual Studio Engineering Team
Weston Hutchins – Program Manager, Visual Studio Shell Team Short Bio: I started at Microsoft as an intern in 2005 and have been working in Visual Studio ever since. I’m currently a PM on the VS Shell Team. No, not the “Isolated” or “Integrated” Shell, but the core VS IDE – it’s UI and services. Prior to my current duties, I was the SKU manager for the Visual Studio Express products. Outside of work, I’m an avid football fan, love winter sports, and always enjoy some quality mac and cheese.
I know this has already been mentioned on some notable blogs, but I wanted to add the VS Platform Team’s word of encouragement to take a few minutes and fill out the Beta 2 survey.
Your real-world experiences will help us track down the remaining areas of focus before we ship in March. So, please let us know what you think about the new UI, the WPF-based editor and its extensibility, the C++ MSBuild project system, the VSIX deployment enhancements and anything else that you like or dislike about the product. The more specific you can be the better. Even though we cannot act on everything, it’s important for us to understand how our customers are using and reacting to Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2. So, please keep it coming!
