Visual Studio support under Vista

by Sander Gerz September 27, 2006 15:32

So the word is out: Visual Studio 2003 wil not be supported with Windows Vista. The community screams uproar! (e.g. here, here and here)

Soma is specifically talking about Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 as the IDE that will be supported, albeit with some issues. But what about Visual Studio 2003 Service Pack 1? In fact, if we take a look at the release notes for Visual Studio 2003's SP1 (yes, I do that sometimes), it clearly states:

Visual Studio .NET 2003 Service Pack 1 Requirements and Specifications
Download size:

160 MB
Available languages

English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian

Supported Operating Systems:

Windows NT 4
Windows 2000
Windows XP
Windows Server 2003

Supported Framework
.NET Framework 1.1
.NET Framework 1.1 SP1 (recommended Framework level)

See, Vista is supported! So, all we developers need to do is install Service Pack 1 for Visual Studio 2003 and we should be fine under Vista... Right?

Speaker Idol at Tech·Ed: Developers

by Sander Gerz September 06, 2006 09:49

Presenting a session at a technical conference (or user group) is not everyone's favourite activity. Especially as most of us are just happy typing and clicking behind (or in front of usually) a computer screen. 

There are, however, also a number of you out there that do want to share the knowledge accumulated through the years. And it doesn't have to be about the future technology, superearly CTP, product shipping in 2012 ... or maybe a bit later. In fact, most developers are eager to learn more about stuff they have to deal with on a daily basis... today. Stuff that's happing now, and not some distant future. So, why not take on the challenge and speak about the stuff you also care about?

Well, you may find it difficult to get in to the 'speaker scene'.  With speakers like Dino Esposito, Ingo Rammer, Christian Weyer, Rafal Lukawiecki, Clemens Vasters and Kimberly Tripp to name a few, the bar is set pretty high. Not my league you may think, and so do the event organisers. It's tough getting through. That's why INETA and Microsoft came up with the idea of Speaker Idol. Sign up for a session you'd like to do and get a chance to win a free ticket to attend Tech·Ed: Developers 2007, PLUS the opportunity to present a technical breakout session to an audience of developers attending the conference.

You have valuable experience to share and you should get some recognition for that! Learn more.
