Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for our Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Event Series in Southern CA.   I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek of Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2010, which will be a landmark release of the premier development toolset for Windows®, Web and Cloud development. 
 
Everyone in attendance had the opportunity to hear about Visual Studio 2010 from experts before the product is launched this year. Microsoft has made significant investments to and improvements of Modeling and Testing/QA tools in Visual Studio 2010.  Our product MVPs delivered a comprehensive overview of Visual Studio 2010 and Team Foundation Server 2010, the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) core of Team System. Attendees were able to view demos of the newest enhancements in version control, reporting, project management and build management.  
 
I want to thank all of our rock start MVP presenters - Chris Menegay/Microsoft MVP - Notion Solutions, Michael Vincent/Microsoft MVP - Accentient, Anna Russo/Notions Solutions, Mickey Williams/VP of Technology and Jeff Leite/Architect -Neudesic.  They helped articulate Microsoft’s current and long term strategy for our development tools platform.  I am sure everyone came away with a better understanding of the exciting changes coming with Visual Studo 2010 Ultimate!
