We heard Eric Lippert was talking with a bunch of customers over in building 20 (that's where a lot of teams meet with groups of customers to show them new technologies).

Part 1 comes in at about 13…

He also shows off how the Distributed…
In January Ali
posted a preview of the Distributed System Designers to his blog. The screenshots he posted are cool, but we figured it would be better if we went over for a live demo. We split this video up into three parts. In part 1 Ali demo's the Application designer.
