    In some ways it is nice to have a refresh of what is new and I know that some are watching these videos for the first time, but each time there is an event there is a lot of content to consume.

    So I recommend just showing new features that are new since the last video.
    Create links (better yet a playlist) to previous videos so that those who haven't seen them can watch them all.
    Thank you for all your hard work.

    @VishalMGiri: I would not say 'but'.  A previous event, I think it was Build 2017, also had a long deep dive with much of the same content.  I try to watch as much as I can and 2x speed... yet still too much.

    Hi Kasey,

    Is it possible to share code style settings across an entire team ? Like having a file that every dev in the team can point to so we don't have every person tinkering around with their own config ?

    I can see the team have been reading code complete 2, a good book.

    @Sergey -- yes, that's the idea! An .editorconfig file just lives in your source directories and can be checked into source control. You might find the following documentation helpful:

    It would be amazing to have an option to disable Roslyn completely. It is truly game changer - constant crashes with OOM on big solutions. The only way to reduce them(not to fix completely) is to use some registry hacks. As a result most of our team are back on 2013.

    I agree. It's a real productivity game changer.
    Now I kill processes and restart Visual Studio 2017 every couple of hours because of high CPU usage, slow compilation, crashes, etc etc.
    I am not the only one facing all the bugs you have introduced in the latest iterations; just check https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com.

    @Megatron: They demonstrated a halving of load time, and you're still complaining? You're likely to never be satisfied.
