This was an exciting week, with the launch of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4 and lots of great content on MSDN!
Las Vegas Launch
The Launch took place on April 12th in 5 different cities. For information on these events, please visit http://vs2010launch.com. The video from Bob Muglia’s VS 2010 Launch keynote is now available on-demand.
The agenda for the rest of Day One was VS 2010 overview sessions, including Windows Development, SharePoint and Office, Dev & Test Collaboration, and Project Management. There are a number of session recordings available now on The Code Project. Tim, Alexandra, and I recorded a live Channel 9 interview on managed code.
We also had a VS Languages booth and MVP dinner where we got to hang out with Languages folks at the event!
Tuesday morning Scott Guthrie announced the Silverlight 4 release, along with several featured partners. There were a number of Languages sessions taking place that day, including the following:
