Getting ready for Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4

Monday is the launch of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4! Are you as excited as I am? Yeah, I thought so.

One of the things I've been doing to get ready for this (in addition to playing with the RC) has been preparing for the April VT.NET user group meeting. Our meeting coincides with the release date so we're dedicating the meeting to have people share their favorite new feature. I'll be talking about:
  • snippets for web developers (e.g. HTML, ASP.NET and MVC)
  • web.config transformations
  • JavaScript intellisense
  • and the revised Add Resources dialog
Information about the VT.NET user group is available at and registration for the event is at One of the new things we're going to do at this meeting, by the way, is to conduct the raffle for people who have registered for the meeting. So go sign up before the meeting!
