Microsoft has announced the broad outline of the material to be presented at the PDC
2003. See here for
the list of tracks & presentations.
Under the “Languages and Tools” section you’ll see a cryptic reference to “a new unified
build system”. This is one of the really
cool things we’re working on for Whidbey. As
details get publicized, I’ll keep you all updated. Until
more gets announced, however, that’s all I can say. (I’m
not, alas, an authorized PR representative of Microsoft!)
The PDC will contain a lot of exciting stuff this year. I
probably won’t be able to go myself (due to some scheduling conficts) but plenty of
people from our team will be there. There
will not only be cool stuff from VS, but also some great stuff from Longhorn (the
next version of Windows).
That’s all for now! -Chris
