Noah Coad Presents Great Performance And Testing Tools Integration with VS 2008 (aka Orcas)

Questioning the audience, pre presentation

Today, Noah, one of my Microsoft hero's in devland presented products from his  groups today.  I've always been a big fan of performance analysis as well  as unit testing and code analysis.  The integration just keeps getting  better.  Now, for example, you can right click on a method name and say  "Generate a unit test".  You can also right click on a unit test and say  "Give me a performance metric".  Very cool.

One thing I need to mention is that there was a guy sitting behind me with 100 pounds of camera equipment and one that could take at least 30 frames a second best I could tell.  Well, he may hav 10000 more pictures than me but he probably will spend at least the next two weeks messing with them in photoshop. Then there is me, the presentation ended 30 minutes ago and ... Blogged!

Noah Coad talking to attendees before the presentation finding out what there expectations are (I'm wondering if he changed his presentation based on what he heard?)
