March 21st MN User Group: Visual Studio 11 Beta Upgrade Pleasant Surprises and Lessons Learned

Charles Sterling

While at the TAP kick off I spoke with Dave about doing a presentation on Intertech’s lessons learned while upgrading to Visual Studio 11 Beta- and he has finally found time March 21st at the MN User Group…Should be a great meeting!

Session Abstract:

Dave Zimmerman has been a part of the TAP program which began with a presentation/question/answer session with the Visual Studio and TFS Product teams on the Microsoft Campus, followed by a dry-run and go-live migrations of pre-existing full-featured TFS 2008, TFS 2010 servers, and .Net (All version dev environments) and Java TeamPrise client upgrades.  All of this was done giving detailed feedback to the product team about hiccups and confusion and receiving continued support from the product team about workarounds and misunderstandings.  Though this is a huge subject, this session will cover the pleasant surprises about real world experience with new features you may or may not have heard about, and tips and tricks about getting around similar issues should you encounter them in your installation or upgrade process..
