VB.NET Rocks Team Tour

Yesterday Jay Roxe and Sean Drain did some great presentations for the .NET User Group Austria. Vienna was the first stop of the User Group tour that has been organized by INETA Europe. The picture of the T-Shirt shows the cities of this tour.

VB.NET Rocks

Jay Roxe started with a presentation about current Visual Basic .NET tools, "Things you didn't know you could do with VB". Jay demonstrated using the new Visual Basic Power Pack that includes full-licensed third-party components. How easy it is to do Ink programming for the TabletPC was the second part of the presentation that was followed by a demonstration how to use Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System. A wish that comes up fairly often (at the UG meeting as well) is support for older Office versions.

After a break the presentation from Sean Drain was about "An introduction to Visual Basic 2005". Among other features Sean showed click-once deployment, My, Toolstrip features, the new Data View control which supports custom column types, Data Visualizers for debugging......

Requests and issues that came up during the presentation:

  • Managed code support for MMC - Alex Holy mentioned a resolution about this issue: the next version of Windows Server 2003 will support a new .NET version of MMC.
  • Extensibility of smart tags - maybe there will be support in a future version of Visual Studio

Here are the complete tour dates.

In Germany the session will be webcast live to connect all User Groups in Germany!
