Visual Studio 2008 Quick Start

Visual Studio is the latest version of Microsoft’s flagship IDE. Along with it comes the .NET Framework 3.5, new versions of Visual Basic and C#, a data query model known as LINQ, improvements to the .NET Framework technologies that were released alongside Windows Vista, and out-of-the-box access to ASP.NET AJAX and Visual Studio Tools for Office.

Searchwindevelopment has made considerable amount of work in presenting Visual Studio 2008 Learning with introduction to the language, performance, testing and data management improvements in VS 2008.

I found few interesting links which would help developers and architects to absorb from the release of VS 2008. I also introduce few blogs which may include very useful information for you to know the latest in Microsoft Technologies.

Let’s Start….
