At a well-attended VSLive presentation (How We Make the Sausage: Lessons From the Factory Floor) in San Francisco last week, Russ Ryan pulled back the curtain to show how we develop software at Microsoft. His talked focused on Developer Division and looks backward at Whidbey and forward to Orcas. You can watch it on video at the FTPOnline.com site.
How does the Microsoft developer division produce software? During the Visual Studio 2005 roll-out, questions for Microsoft’s developer division arose about its process and tools. Russ Ryan talks about what the team learned and what practices were set in place to make the next VS version even better.
