Hola! Barcelona is a VS SDK hit!

My first trip to Europe is turning out to be great!  The city of Barcelona is great.  Many attractions to see, lots of nice things to do. Sunday and Monday this week the VSIP team conducted a Developer Lab with lots of great presentations and 1:1 meetings discussing extensibilty.  We ended that event with a…

If you author a package or add-in for VS, we encourage you to download the VS 2005 SP1 Beta in order to determine if there are any modfications to your package or add-in that need to be done in order to be compatible.  It is very likely that there is nothing you need to do…

My apologies at not blogging more often, but TechEd became even more of a blur in the last days and I simply had to let it drop.  Perhaps if the network were better behaved… Day 3 Wednesday during the day was like any other.  Lots of potential partners and lots of general VS programming questions. …
