Webcast on Visual Studio Tips & Tricks


Mike Benkovich from http://benkotips.com and my fellow C# QA team member Eric Maino have talked me into doing a webcast on Visual Studio Tips & Tricks. Mike was the host, and Eric and I were showing VS features that we like and use often in our day-to-day coding.

Here’s a list of tips that Eric and I were showing:

And here’s the webcast itself:

    Hi!

    Is there a way to see the webcast now? Has it been stored somewhere?

    Yup, just go to https://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/WebCastEventDetails.aspx?EventID=1032396810&EventCategory=4&culture=en-US&CountryCode=US, click Register, sign in, click through some other buttons, and you will have an option to either download or watch online 🙂 Super easy :)))))

    How freaking painfully many actions I need to take to watch it without LiveID. First – sign up for LiveID, fill in a bunch of mandatory textboxes, then sign up for the event… Moreover, the webcast is encoded in some hideous MS-style format and doesn’t work in Firefox. Why the security? Can’t it have been done Youtube-style? Click the link – watch the video in flash. Or Silverlight.

    MSDN reminds me of Soviet Bureaucracy sometimes 🙂

    And it doesn’t notify me of answers here by email even after I have signed up %)

    Sorry man 🙂

    Nevermind, I’ve always hated MSDN for that. It has just frustrated me once more.

    The webcast itself is nice 🙂 Shame projects from old versions of VS often have troubles being compatible with new versions. And shame I mostly write in C 🙂
