DevConnections VS 2010 Launch Event Sessions

This week I gave three talks at the Visual Studio Connections conference launch event for Visual Studio 2010. The topics included using Workflow 4 in service applications, writing custom activities in Workflow 4, and unit testing services and workflows.

You can download the slides and demos for each here:

It was great to see the interest and enthusiasm surrounding the launch of VS 2010. There is so much great new stuff there and in the .NET 4 framework to be excited about, as well as the launch of Silverlight 4.

I think one of the most important things for companies to keep in mind is that they can move to VS 2010 safely and keep building and supporting apps for .NET 3.5 and even back to 2.0 for as long as they need to for their deployment environments. But meanwhile they can start benefiting immediately from the big improvements in the VS 2010 IDE, including better code editing features, significantly improved designer for WPF and Silverlight, faster loading References window, IntelliTrace and so much more.
