Join us April 2nd for the Launch of Visual Studio 2019!

Amanda Silver

At Connect(); as little over two months ago, we released the first Visual Studio 2019 Preview. Based on your inputs, we’ve made several improvements to Visual Studio 2019 in our endeavor to make this the best Visual Studio yet. On behalf of our entire team, I’m excited to announce the upcoming release of Visual Studio 2019 on April 2, 2019 at the Visual Studio 2019 Launch Event.

Join us at our virtual event

Join us online on April 2 starting at 9 AM Pacific Time for demos and conversations centered around development with Visual Studio 2019, Azure DevOps, and GitHub. We’ll have something for everyone, whether you’re a developer who uses C#, C++, or Python or target the web, desktop, or cloud. And, of course, you’ll be one of the first who get to try out the Visual Studio 2019 release.

Scott Hanselman will kick off the day with an online keynote highlighting the newest innovations in Visual Studio. Be prepared to be delighted and ready to return to your coding even more productively than before! The keynote will be followed by several live-streamed sessions, hosted by experts with online Q&A, that dive deeper into various features and programming languages. We’ll close out the day with a virtual attendee party sponsored by our Visual Studio ecosystem partners, so make sure you stick around!

We’re also looking to team up with community organizers around the globe to organize local, in-person launch events between April 2 and the end of June. Check out the local events page for more details on how to host one of these events or to join local events around the globe. We’ll have supporting content available on GitHub and we’ll support your local event with swag if you let us know about it by March 1.
