  • Comments 17

[EDIT:  As Guy pointed out on his blog http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/bursteg/archive/2007/11/19/visual-studio-2008-rtm-is-available-for-msdn-subscribers.aspx VS2008 is RTM for MSDN already]

 

By now it is no secret that Visual Studio 2008 will RTM before the end of November.  Soma mentioned this at TechEd Europe and I couldn't be more excited!  Make sure you are getting ready with for the new version by checking out our webcasts and other training materials that are available.  Here is a list of places to help you get prepared:

 

Main Visual Studio 2008 Product Page     http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/products/default.aspx

 

Main World Wide Events Website     http://msevents.microsoft.com/cui/default.aspx?culture=en-US

NOTE:  Don't let the name throw you off, this is your best "one stop shop" for getting MS content.  Make sure to take advantage of the Virtual Labs!  Below is an extremely short list  at what I found when I searched on the keyword "linq":

Channel 9 (of course)     http://channel9.msdn.com/

 

 

And of course the various blogs (on the left hand side) and other resources that crop up.   I will be doing a 26 part webcast on new features of VS2008 beginning in December as well.

 

 

In the meantime, let's have a contest.   Post here with your list of resources for getting up to speed with VS2008.  I will randomly choose one person to be the recipient of ONE of these prizes (winner's choice):

 

Windows Vista Ultimate

Office 2007 Ultimate

Halo 3/Flight Simulator X  Combo gift

[Edit:  contest extended until 12/1 by popular demand!]

Just in time for the holidays!  Contest ends on 11/26/2007 @ 5pm Central.  Good Times :)

 

(MS employees not eligible but shoot me an email if you would like to see an FTE version of this contest)
