Earlier this week I attended VSX
DevCon on Microsoft campus where I learned quite a bit about the changes coming
to the upcoming version of Visual Studio (Dev10) and its Extensibility Model. This
was very important for us to be abreast of the future Microsoft releases and
stay ahead of the game with our products. I twittered some
of the event.
It was fun conference too. I talked to many MS VSX folks, first time saw Rico
Mariani talking (he is excellent!), met new people and old friends including Richard
Hundhausen, Roy Osherove and Eli
Lopian of TypeMock, discussed templating options (something to be included into
future version of CodeIt.Right) with T4 guys.
While fun, food and snacks were a little different this time around. There was another
conference across the hall and MS catering had naturally setup separate snack tables.
Which I didn't really pay much attention to... So when VSX tables got low on snacks
I was yelled at by a catering lady for trying to get something from the other conference
table. I had a weird feeling of a kid being caught stealing cookies...
Well, the story next day made me feel a little better about my "cookie incident" :)
It was mentioned already by Ken Levy via
Twitter and Ted Neward on his
blog - Steve Ballmer got scolded by catering for taking a cookie without VSIP
badge... At least I wasn't the only one who got confused and yelled at ;)
Back to the business now. Me being out of the office for few days didn't affect the
progress on v1.1 release of CodeIt.Right. In fact, it is finished, tested and will
are releasing it tomorrow.
