TailSpin Travel – Now Boarding! Your Personal Tour of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0


During Bob Muglia’s keynote at the PDC last week, Cameron Skinner from the Visual Studio team, presented a demo focused on some of the most exciting new features coming in Visual Studio 2010, .NET Framework 4, and the server platform.

The demo was built to align with the following release announcements: ASP.NET MVC 2 beta, Windows Identity Foundation RTM,  and the beta of the new Windows Server AppFabric.

The Tailspin Travel application covers a pretty substantial set of functionality, but ultimately seeks to provide a holistic perspective of how Visual Studio 2010, .NET Framework 4, and the server platform can be used together. The following is a list of the exact features that are shown in the application:
