General Event Information

Featured Product/Topic: Visual Studio 2008

Recommended Audiences: Solution Architects, Software Developers, Developers

Performance improvements begin by speeding up the simple task you do every minute of every hour of every day you use Visual Studio. Just like a coin jar where you place your spare change, you’ll see the time you save add up into the days, weeks, and into the months. This talk provides the best of the best, 21 tips that can be used in any language, which stretched across your 3 primary activities in the IDE: coding, customizing, and debugging.

Sara Ford is the program manager for CodePlex, Microsoft’s open source project hosting site. Prior to CodePlex, she worked on the Visual Studio team for six years, where she continues to run the Visual Studio Tip of the Day on her blog. Her life-long goal is to become a 97 year old weightlifter, so she can be featured on the local news.
