Visual Studio vNext

James-Serra, 2011-07-22

“vNext” is the codename Microsoft has chosen for the next version of the Visual Studio.

A big feature is improving the application lifecycle management (ALM) process.  Check out this pdf “Visual Studio VNext: Application Lifecyle Managment” or the video The Future of Microsoft Visual Studio Application Lifecycle Management or the blog Agile Project Management in Visual Studio ALM V.Next.

To view the IDE improvements, visit Microsoft Visual Studio IDE Futures from TechEd 2011.  Lot’s of cool new features, especially when it comes to searching.

Note that the same project can be used in both VS 2010 and VS vNext.  There is no upgrade wizard as a project saved in vNext can be used in VS 2010 and visa-versa.

Ian Quigley’s New features of VS2012 revealed goes over some of the IDE improvements, and Susan Ibach lists her Top 5 Things to Look for in Visual Studio vNext.

Speaking at Community Events – More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events – Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I’ve got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
