I just got the session info for Tim Wagner's talk at the PDC next week. Tim is our development manager on the VS Platform team. We're all pretty excited about this talk and I promise you won't be disappointed by the content that will be presented.
Here's more information about his talk:
TL32 Microsoft Visual Studio: Customizing and Extending the Development Environment
Thursday 10/30 10:15 - 11:30 in 404A
The next version of Visual Studio moves beyond add-ins and packages to unleash powerful new ways to customize and extend the environment. Learn about the Visual Studio extension model-built on a common Microsoft .NET extensibility framework--that makes it easy to customize Visual Studio in new ways. See how to create extensions for the new code editor and project system, and hear how to build your own graphical designers and specialized development environments.
Here's Tim's Bio from the PDC site:
Dr. Wagner is a former Eclipse board member and lead of the Eclipse Web Tools Platform, now working with the Visual Studio platform team to enhance the Visual Studio product line with extensible technologies and to exploit WPF to create new user interaction scenarios. His interests include IDEs, compiler front ends, and the creation of extensible platforms and APIs.
