VS2008/.NET 3.5 released – and more!

Obviously, the big news today is the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 was released along with the .NET 3.5 framework.

The official announcement (somasegar)

  But wait, that’s not all! Here are some other goodies too (combination of a few good things I found on a few different blogs):

·         Beginner training (not specific to 2008, but I just ran across it): Check out the Beginner Developer Learning Center over at http://msdn.microsoft.com/beginner.  Everything you need to start off slow and build either Web or Windows applications using Visual Studio Express.

·         VS2008 training and demos: “We’ve also released a fantastic resource (that was formerly only available within Microsoft) for developers to learn about Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5.  Download the Visual Studio 2008 Training Kit, which contains many presentations, hands-on labs, and demos covering a variety of topics (including LINQ, C# 3.0, VB 9, and much more.)”

·         Videos: from the presentations are also working their way onto Channel 9.  David Aiken has a helpful post with more details.

·         Goodies: If you download the VS2008 Express editions, you also get LOTS of really nice goodies – read here: http://www.microsoft.com/express/registration/

Pretty good stuff!
