Visual Studio Extensibility Day at Build 2019

Mads Kristensen

Please join us for a day full of Visual Studio extensibility deep dives, geek-outs, and networking on Friday, May 10th, 2019 at the Microsoft campus in Redmond. Our agenda is intended for existing and new Visual Studio IDE (not Visual Studio Code) extension authors and partners and will be highly technical in nature.

The Extensibility Day will take place in Microsoft building 18 which is the home of the Visual Studio engineering team. This means that we will have Visual Studio engineers directly on hand throughout the day for your questions and troubleshooting.

You’ll learn about what’s new in Visual Studio 2019 for extensibility, get an update from the Marketplace and see what’s on the roadmap. On top of that, there will be technical deep dives that explore the inner workings of it all. Sprinkle on some networking, Q&A, swag, and surprises and you’ll end up with a great day of learning and fun. The event ends in the afternoon with an opportunity to unwind with your fellow extenders at the Microsoft Commons in the heart of the Redmond Campus.

Should I go?

If you have written a Visual Studio IDE extension or have been a Visual Studio partner, then we would encourage you to attend. There is a lot of content, networking opportunities and you have a venue to interact with the Visual Studio engineers and help shape future work too!

The event will not contain any introductory sessions and will assume that you are familiar with the Visual Studio extensibility model.


Registration is now open and operates under a first-come first-serve basis. We have limited availability so make sure to register as soon as possible.

      No, the event will unfortunately not be recorded. I’m planning on writing a blog post with the highlights afterwards for people who couldn’t make it.

        Please do, I’m very interested in these topics as they aren’t as common.
