I'll be participating in a chat on Friday 3/18 that includes Eric Rudder, who is the Senior VP for Server and Tools. The title in the chat is "What's New in Whidbey". Here is the description:
Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, Code-Named "Whidbey", will radically improve developer productivity while continuing to provide full access to the Microsoft .NET Framework. This is your opportunity to chat live with the Senior Vice President responsible for this innovative solution. Eric Rudder will join us live on March 18th along with members of the Whidbey team to tackle your Whidbey questions.
