Beta Time at the MVP Global Summit

UPDATE 3/1/2012: We just sat down with Corporate Vice President, Visual Studio Jason Zander and he has a personal message for all of you- check it out!


As if there’s not enough for community leaders to talk about at the MVP Global Summit, today marked the release of Microsoft Windows 8 Consumer Preview and Visual Studio 11 Beta.  We caught up with Silverlight MVP Michael Washington, Beth Massi, a senior program manager for Visual Studio, Visual Basic MVP Andrew Brust, and Jay Schmelzer, a principal director program manager for Visual Studio, to talk about the role community plays in the development and ecosystem of Visual Studio 11 and what’s new in Visual Studio LightSwitch. Make sure to check out the book Beth and Michael talk about, Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch Unleashed, by Visual Basic MVP Alessandro Del Sole.

It’s already been half a day, but if you haven’t already, you can download the new releases here: Windows 8 Consumer Preview and Visual Studio 11 Beta.

    This is really exciting to see the formation of all the new features in the VS11 soon to become official. Just getting into Lightswitch, and I find that there's lots of cool concepts that I can make use of.
