TechEd 2007 Day1: Past, Present and Future

We all know the past. So let's focus on present and the future. I have only few minutes to write a quick post before next session but there is a few quite exciting news I want to share.

There is a bit of news from keynote presentation just ended.

  • Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework will be released at end of November for MSDN subscribers.
  • New VS licensing is coming. One of the biggest changes is free access to VS source code. New license grants permission to extend VS to create IDE for other platforms than Microsoft. As an example, IDE for Worl of Warcraft has been presented. Now you can create your WoW using VS2008 including intellisense and full designer. That was just amazing.
  • PopFly should be available for download today, just as I'm writing that post. With literally few clicks you can create advanced gadgets for Silverlight.

And few keywords from the future:

  • Visual Studio 10, codename Rosario will be released as CTP this year. Beta release will be available in 2008.
  • Numbers of other great tools are coming next year: Expression Studio 2, Silverlight vNext and .NET Framework 4.

So, exciting days are coming.

PS. I will try to upload some pictures soon.
