Visual Studio 2013 Preview and Visual Studio 2012 Update 3

Visual Studio Update 3

The Microsoft BUILD 2013 is now over. The Visual Studio team has been working very hard to present the new Visual Studio 2013 preview. I hardly recommend you to have a look at the sessions on Channel 9 about this new edition (not a basic update) of your favorite developer tool. Here are some of my recommendations:

If you want to have a quick overview of all the work done by Microsoft for any products, I highly recommend to look at the Keynote Day 1 and Keynote Day 2.

In the last months I’ve been working a lot on Web development projects (using MVC Razor) and looking at the next IDE, I can’t wait to get the final build. Beside the fact that the Web designer has been rebuild from scratch which make the evolutions much easier, the integration with Windows Azure has been improved and you’ll be able to control almost everything on your cloud account with Visual Studio.
Download Visual Studio 2013 Preview today and try the new features of the IDE. For those using Visual Studio 2012, the Update 3 has also been published but very quietly.

Announcing Microsoft BUILD 2012


Microsoft is announcing today the next big developer event for this fall. Registration opens on August 8 at 8 AM Pacific Time for the event at the Microsoft Campus in Redmond between October 30 and November 2, 2012.

In addition to Windows 8, they will talk about Windows Azure, Windows Phone 8, Windows Server 2012 and of course Visual Studio 2012…

I attended the last year event in Anaheim, CA it was excellent, so if you can make the trip to Redmond, WA you should consider this event!
