The good thing about having too much work to do when I got back from TechEd is that by now other people have gotten the word out about items from the conference, so all I need to do is link to them. 🙂
Here are links to some of the goings-on at last week's TechEd:
- Visual Studio Orcas Named as Visual Studio 2008
- Visual Studio 2008 Shell
- "If you create software development tools, you’ll want to consider building on the Visual Studio 2008 Shell. A streamlined Visual Studio development environment, the Visual Studio Shell provides the core foundation so you can focus on building your application’s unique features.
