Interview with Microsoft's Jon Williams

Icon 2 Comments
Due to Vimeo's upload limits, this interview fit first, also sorry for the shaky hands if you watch the interview.

Our discussion focused Visual Studio 2010 ( Beta 2 ). Many of the new features include WPF interface, customization of the start page, intellitrace, embedding images & videos into code, Team Foundation Server, and new testing tools. VS2010 is going to be a comprehensive sequel. Microsoft's goal is create a complete development environment between planning, source control, development, testing, and more, all of which will be handled all within Visual Studio.

As part of the marketing team Jon oversees pushing the product to the potential consumers. Aside from using us Microsoft Insiders ;) they have been pushing tutorials and interviews on blogs and web-casts (like Channel 9) and other similar sites. All in all Microsoft is excited to get this product out there with good reasons, they have a lot of new tools to bring to the table that any developer will benefit from. For those who dont know, Visual Studio will be sold in 3 different "versions": Professional, Premium, and Ultimate. The RC is out, and you should definitely install it and give it a try (especially if your coming to my webinar) Otherwise you'll be able to get it through your MSDN accounts. There will most likely be MSNDAA and Dreamspark versions as well.

All in all, it looks like 2010 is going to be an improvement from 2008, the only things that are disappointing is it still takes all day to install, and the "first time setup" is no speed demon either, but hey thats what internet distractions are for!
