11:00am - 12:00pm

Level: Everyone

Amanda Silver

CVP, Head of Product Developer Division


The mission of the Visual Studio team is to make every developer on every team more productive and we've been busy! In this keynote, Amanda will take you on a rollercoaster ride through the latest enhancements of Visual Studio to make you the most productive developer in your team and the fastest dev team in the industry. She'll show you the latest and greatest additions to make every character you type more optimized, how you can collaborate better as a team with new features like Live Share, how we're bringing testing and code analysis even more deeply into the development "inner loop", and highlight new areas that we're working on to extend Visual Studio to new platforms and application categories. She'll also give you a sneak peak of some of the long-lead projects that Microsoft has in the works that will bring even more developer productivity to you. Expect a demo-heavy, so-new-the-paint-hasn't-dried session!
