Tech Ed North America Session Videos

Posted by

Tech Ed events provide some of the most comprehensive technical education across Microsoft’s current and soon-to-release suite of products, solutions and services.  Microsoft has posted a comprehensive collection of session videos on MSDN’s Channel 9 web site.  This year’s event took place in Atlanta, Georgia last May, and below are some of my favorite videos.

Application Lifecycle Management: Microsoft Project Server 2010 and Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010, Better Together: Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010 and Project Server Integration Feature Pack bridge the gap between Project Portfolio Management and Application Development.  This session provides an overview and demonstrates the new Integration feature pack.

Introduction to SharePoint Development with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010: This session provides an overview of the new project and item templates, flexible packaging and deployment, and many other development features and tools.
