Video: New Error Checking Feature in Visual Studio Service Pack 1

In this 12 minute video I talk with C# IDE PM DJ Park about a new feature in Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 beta called Live Semantic Errors or Squiggles. This feature gives an increased level of live feedback on potential errors that might be found in your code. In the past, many of these errors would only surface after you tried to compile your code, but now you can see them interactively as you type code in the IDE. This feature should help developers become more productive by allowing them to find errors quickly.
