I’m downloading it as we speak. So please wait until I’ve done :) Oh, for the first couple of days the download is only available through MSDN subscriber download, but then MS will make it public for everyone.
Today Microsoft announced a new (albeit beta 2) release of their flagship developer software, Visual Studio 2010. I’m curious if Sharepoint development will be available now because we’re building our new Sharepoint 2010 course and I think this would be nice to have (I’ll check it out after downloading completes, look for details here). I’ll also be looking at improvement in the Workflow Foundation 4 designer, because some things didn’t work yet with the designer (but in code it did). Of course I’m loving .NET framework 4 with its WCF improvements. I’ve been looking over them and I’m impressed. Especially with the integration of the REST starter toolkit, because I’m sure REST will become more and more important for Web service development, thinking about Silverlight for example.
And for MSDN subscribers we will get:
Free develop hours with Azure
Full access to Team Foundation Server 2010
40 hours of e-Learning
Also the official date of the launch of Visual Studio has been released: 22 march 2010. So what’s with the 22 of the month (on 22 October MS is releasing Windows 7 to the public)? :)
