At the Visual Studio 2008 Launch in LA

I am already having a great time at the Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008 and Sql Server 2008 Launch event in LA…


I am gave a very fun session on Visual Studio 2008 for Web Developers... It was fun to pull this together over the last few days (harddrive crash excluded).  There is SO much good stuff for web developers in VS2008...   From Linq, to CSS\HTML designers, to JavaScript debugging and intellesnse and of course the ASP.NET 3.5 support Ajax (updatePanel, the Ajax control toolkit, JSON based web services, etc). 

What is your favorite feature? 

If you could not make it to LA, the good news is there are tons of local launch events.. check out the list

Being in the LA convention center brings back all kinds of great memories of PDCs past and makes me look forward to PDC '08

    are they really giving the full versions of the software away as a promotional kit?

    Thank you for responding to my post. When I signed up for my event they mentioned a promotional kit but did not go in to detail.

    Your presentation was my favorite of the day! Thanks for keeping us engaged. It would have been nice if you guys weren’t sand bagging the MVC bits for MIX though.
