Visual Studio 2010 Launch – Edinburgh, 16th April

Via Mike Taulty:

If you’re up in Edinburgh then you’re lucky as it’s a great city and it also has the nicest Microsoft office I’ve seen in the UK ( rooftop gardens 🙂 ).

You’re also lucky in that on the 16th April there’s a Visual Studio 2010 launch event happening in our Edinburgh Office and Jason Zander, the General Manager for Visual Studio, will be there.

I imagine, given the size of the office, that this will give you very good access to chat to Jason about whatever you like in Visual Studio.

So…if you’re up in that part of the country then why not drop in? Here’s the blurb for the event:

9.30am – 10.00am Arrival
10.00am – 11.30am Keynote & Q&A – Jason Zander, Global GM for Visual Studio @jlzander
11.30am – 12.00pm
12.00pm – 1.00pm Developer & Tester Collaboration with Visual Studio 2010 – Giles Davies, Technical Specialist
1.00pm – 1.30pm Lunch
