Rusty Deschenes - Developing on the VS Core Team

Sign in to queue

Description

Mike Sampson took his camcorder over to software design engineer -- he works on Visual Studio core --  Rusty Deschenes' office. Got a demo at about 8:40. Audio is a bit low. Sorry about that.

They talk about the managed packaged network and project flavoring in Visual Studio 2005.

    I could not understand much from the video... what are flavors?

    Sorry, I couldn't really follow this video either. Besides the fact that the audio was low, Rusty's voice was so subdued (does he have a cold?) that I ended up bailing out early. Also, I don't think there was a clear enough explanation upfront about the subject matter. In my case, I'm not familiar with project flavors and along with the technical problems, I couldn't follow along well enough to figure it out. Oh well!

    You can get the latest version of the Visual Studio SDK from MSDN <http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/extend/>. In that SDK you can find the sample Rusty walks me through under the name ProjectSubtype.

    Two important video tips:

    (1) Use a tripod whenever possible (especially when pointing the camera at a computer screen)

    (2) The *interviewer* should appear on camera at least once in the beginning.  It makes the interview seem more like an interview as opposed to an interrogation.
