Interesting Visual C++ Resources

A few weeks ago the Visual C++ team delivered two days of technical content to developers down in Northern California.  At this event, we mentioned a large number of useful resources.  We thought we’d take the opportunity to pass them on to readers of the blog as well.  Hopefully you’ll find them valuable.
