New Episode: Introduction to Visual Studio 2005

Some of you may know it more by it’s “Whidbey” codename, but it’s official name is now “Visual Studio 2005”.

Jason Zander and Amnon Horowitz describe how Visual Studio has evolved over time to create a great way to develop managed code
It currently is in beta, and in this new episode of “The .NET Show” we provide you with an introductory discussion about some of the features, capabilities and coding enhancements that it provides.

Shanku Niyogi shows some of the added features in Visual Studio for ASP.NET development

We’ll definately have additional episodes later on that dive into some of the specific new capabilities of Whidb… er… “Visual Studio 2005”, but hopefully this first glance will provide you with some of the initial information that you’ll need to get started.

After you watch this episode, please be sure to provide your feedback on what you think of it in the “Rating” section at the bottom of the page. And then provide some comments back here on this post to let us know what features and capbilities of “Visual Studio 2005” you need us to focus on in a future episode.

    Cool, a other great show…. It worth the waiting. The stuff on ASP.NET was cool. And for those of you who want more infos about team system(Barton) go to Channel9 :

    And if it was possible to give more infos about the express product line that would be great.

    Keep the great work everyone and let said like Robert Hess :"Until then, we’ll see you on the web" 😀

    It was very nice episode,I really liked it.

    Hope you can show us something on SQL Server 2005, and the ASP.NET Performance expectations.

    Could you tell whatever thoughtless kid at Microsoft who writes the 100k/300k file download code that when you specify a different file destination than the C: drive, then that’s where it should go immediately – not write to the C:WINDOWSTEMP directory first and then copy it.

    Many managed installations have a minimum sized C: drive, with all the files residing on a networked drive of a different letter – so if you don’t have more than a few tens of Mb allocated to your C: drive by your administrator then you can’t download the files.

    Great episode, but took you guys a while to post it. An overview of Yukon would be great! I hope that will be the topic of the next .Net Show. Or maybe an episode about what ASP.NET 2.0 has to offer in terms of security.
