  • VSX DevCon and a very amusing incident with a kebab

    by Serge Baranovsky

    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.

    Stay tuned!
