Today is the day:
Visual Studio 2008 RTM is here
!!! Our good friend and Developer Division VP
S. Somasegar (Soma),
Principal Group Program Manager Carol Grojean and Principal Program Manager Lead Jeff Beehler sit down with me to discuss this paramount VS release. Did you know that Team System was heavily used during the development of VS 2008 (and
therefore VS2008 Team System. This is great dogfooding!)?
VS 2008 was completely built using the patterns and pratices derived from MQ (Milestone Quality - see
that covers this in detail) and Intentional Engineering (see
Emma Williams' interview
to learn all Intentional Engineering in the Developer Division).
This is the best
release of VS to date, rife with innovations from profound IDE enhancements, debugging, performance, CLR to associated languages and tools.
Today is a great
Tune in and celebrate with some of the DevDiv leaders. Congratulations to all involved, especially to those of you out there who provided valuable feedback and suggestions all along the way to this grand milestone.
