If you follow this blog then you may have noticed that we’re not the best at scheduling updates.  When things get really busy (for March, see DevWeek) blogging is probably the first thing to go on the backburner.  We’re trying to address the problem but in the meantime you may also want to follow us on Twitter (@VisualStudioUK) where we try and post anything that is new or interesting on Visual Studio or ALM.  Here’s what you might have missed in March:
