Visual Studio 2008 Overview for Architects

Speaker: Doug Turnure

If your job as a Software Architect is to research and exploit technology to help achieve business results – then you need to take a look at what has just been released in Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5. In this talk we will discuss several of the many new features you need to understand and explore to be able to fully leverage these new capabilities in your environment, including multi-targeting support, new features for SOA, and web enhancements. Finally, we will discuss the road ahead and preview some of the local architect, web design, and developer events that you can use to help further your understanding of Microsoft platform and development technologies.
