Join Tim Huckaby, Founder of InterKnowlogy & Actus Software, and Scott Guthrie, Corporate Vice President in Microsoft's Server & Tools Business Division, as they discuss the new features in the next release of Visual Studio 11 Dev Preview (Dev 11) and Windows Azure, announced at the Build 2011 Conference. Scott takes us through the many new improvements to Dev 11 which include the next release of .NET 4.5. It is also side-by-side compatible with other releases of Visual Studio and its solution and project file compatible with older releases, making it easier for project sharing. Scott also discusses Windows Azure, its cadence of release as it is a service based, and the coming waves of innovation that we can expect in the near future. An awesome interview you don't want to miss!
