Interview: Eric Nelson on VS 2010 and .NET 4.0

by Abel Avram on Jun 04, 2009 |

In this interview Eric Nelson talks about what’s coming in VS 2010, the C# – VB.NET convergence, the introduction of Parallel as a library, and Azure cloud computing.

Watch: Eric Nelson on VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 (32 min.)

Eric covers some of the improvements added to Visual Studio 2010 like having the designer built on WPF. This will allow partners to create add-ins which do things that weren’t possible before, like representing classes with animations. Other major features he addresses: Workflows, SharePoint support.

Another issue was  C# vs. VB.NET vs. C++ development status. C# competed with VB.NET in the beginning but they convergence right now. The intent is to have the same set of features in both languages.

A large part of the interview is dedicated to cloud computing and Azure. Eric explains how Azure is different from AWS and what is Microsoft’s approach to cloud computing.

Parallel by Craig Cameron

Well I hope all the parallel stuff actually makes it into VB.net. Currently it is very painful to take advantage of multi-core procs.
