VS 2008 and .NET 3.5 Beta 2 Released

VS 2008 and .NET 3.5 Beta 2 Released – ScottGu’s Blog

Been waiting on this for a while 🙂 I haven’t figured out if it shipped with a go-live license yet though.

I’m particularly eager to get a good look at the Team System stuff in 2008. I’ve been putting off testing of the beta team system stuff until it got more stable (deploying team server is a pain, even if you are using a virtual server).

Assuming this does have a go-live license, it will finally allow me to put together an update for the CCK project on the new platform too. More on that later…

Microsoft Robotics Studio

Microsoft Robotics Studio

Microsoft is a REALLY big company. Even for those of us that work in IT and make our livings off Microsoft’s technologies exclusively, they still sometimes manage to slip products and technologies by us… but rarely does Microsoft have an entire development platform that manages to elude my notice.

I just came across this one. I wasn’t even aware Microsoft was doing anything in robotics, much less actually had a development platform on the market.
