Visual Studio 2008 Launch



The news just came out on the wire that our official launch date in Los Angeles for Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2008 (formerly codenamed “Orcas”). The Canadian plans have not been ironed out yet, but the moment they are, we’ll be posting them here. Our team is really excited – there is a lot of cool stuff included in the release including LINQ, Dynamic Data controls, and so forth. Scott Guthrie did a whole series of blog posts highlighting the technologies that will be coming out soon – check it out…
