The newness of everything gets you motivated to do great things. Speaking of new, Visual Studio 10 Beta 1 has been released to us folks who have signed NDAs; by the time you read this, you may even be able to download it yourself. I must say I am pretty impressed with everything that it has to offer. As per usual with betas of Visual Studio, it is a bit sluggish (especially with the new WPF UI), but that will improve as RTM approaches.</p></div></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://devproconnections.com/development/aspnet-40-awesomeness" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://devproconnections.com/development/aspnet-40-awesomeness#comments Development AspNetPro Fri, 30 Oct 2009 16:09:11 +0000 7337 at http://devproconnections.com In a Comfort Zone http://devproconnections.com/development/comfort-zone <div class="field-byline"> Jonathan Goodyear </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Web apps are often only as useful as the ability of their usersto understand and interact with them.
