Exciting (for .Net/VS Developers) .Net 4 and VS 2010
Just wanted to point out that a few days ago Microsoft unvieled some information on the new .Net and Visual Studio enhancements they are preparing for 2010.
That’s right I am super excited to play with the new stuff before I have even gone through every new feature released in the 2008 packages. (Personally one of the things I have been loving recently is the CSS and styling UI enhancements see Daniel Moth’s good screen cast of these here (if interested): mms://wm.microsoft.com/ms/uk/msdn/nuggets/v2_CSSinVisualStudio2008_Moth.wmv)
I really like many of the new focuses that Microsoft is putting forward and the way Team Foundation Server is improving the rate of process adoption in many development groups. The further they get with the enhancements the easier it is to develop and really focus on developing (if you are a developer) without being as distracted by the troubles of communication and tracking.
Even if you aren’t a developer this is still good news, because the more they work towards that UML approach and enhance the ways Business Analysts and Consultants can communicate their requirements and expectations to developers the more powerful the developed solutions will be.
Excited for the future,
