    I’m not able to find “Container-Based Development with Visual Studio Code” and “What’s new with TypeScript” in the session list. Are they still planned?

    I was a bit worried at the lack of any sessions specifically on VS 2022 when searching through the schedule on the website earlier, but that’s great to hear there’s an unlisted “What’s coming in the first preview of Visual Studio 2022” session. Really looking forward to that – I suspect that’s going to a popular one!

      I was also surprised that there wasn’t session about VS 2022 but hopefully it had changed. Definitely it will be interesting session and maybe we will know more when the 2022 preview version will be released. The first announcement mentioned the summer so we could speculate that the final version will be released at the end 2021 or at the beginning of 2022.
