According to Microsoft Product Manager of Visual Studio Mr. Scott Guthrie, Visual Studio 2010 Release Candidate might come out on Feb 2010, with more improved memory management functionality.
In order to make sure that these fixes truly address the performance issues reported, and to help validate them across the broadest number of scenarios and machine configurations, we’ve decided to ship another public preview release of VS 2010 and .NET 4 before we ship. Specifically, we plan to make a Release Candidate build available in February that everyone will be able to download and test. It will be a public build and include a broad “go live” license that supports production deployment.

Yesterday I had a session on asp.net 3.5 and 4.0 features
Venue www.hyderabadtechies.info , online session
Hyderabad Techies is a Microsoft Developer User Group initiative for sharing knowledge, started and mentored by Microsoft MVP, Chandra Sekhar Thotta. It’s really a nice experience we are been getting knowledge share from different people from different companies and different areas of expertise.
I am not a core member of the Hyderabad Techies. But i am trying to help the way i can, to contribute to the people, who are in need of desparate help.
My Session was on ASP.NET 3.5 Features, in which i explained about the major features in ASP.NET 3.5 and ASP.NET 3.5 SP1. My main intention was to explain about ASP.NET 4.0, I know it’s important for people to know ASP.NET 3.5 first. Then only they will get an idea on what’s new in ASP.NET 4.0.
So after finishing i rushed on to ASP.NET 4.0, were all fine. Some minor set backs, some points i missed or messed. Other than that everything went fine.
I hope that every one got what i was trying to explain. Feedbacks where not that much good. But i believes that gradually things will improve.
More over i was not prepared at all. Because of hectic work schedule got me up in the day morning. I thought of preparing for it from office. But plans all went wrong.
I hope some other day i could explain those clearly and more elaborately..
Great work Hyderabad Techies..
I was thinking Certifications will add advantage to prove myself in the industry. But things changed a lot, i have faced few situations while Offer negotiations were going on with HR’s of few companies.
I found they did not bother my certifications or my knowledge. They bother what is my current salary and making the offer according to that. It’s insane. Not every one have luck to start their career with Top CMM Level-5 companies. So gradually people will prefer to gain knowledge and expertise, working in other TIER companies. They have a hope that after some time their luck will change and they will get a better pay or better position meets with their dream and needs.
Some are not able to make it. But still we have hope, some day will get our number..
Basis of this post is that
I want to upgrade my MCPD Certification on .NET 2.0 to 3.5. I do not prefer taking upgrade exam, so i would always prefer to write full exam on .NET 3.5 Certifications.
My Plan goes as follows in some where in near future.
