    Paul F. Keynote part 2

    The keynote continued with a slick demo showing off some of the new features in VS 2005 by Brian Keller (Product Manager). Here are somethings I noted:

    - Good looking WinForms UI
    - New Data View Grid control
    - Smart Tags on controls
    - Code Snippets to make things easy
    - Easy connection and work with SQL
    - AutoCorrect (similar to Word)
    - ClickOnce deployment

    But the highlight was when a “BattleBot” running the .Net Compact Framework came on stage.

    Paul then announced a Developer Competition with the winner collecting $50,000

    And then I heard the news I was waiting for, the week of Nov 7th will be a launch of Visual Studio and SQL Server. Hopefully he means November 7th 2005!
