MVP Global summit, Help 3, Sandcastle and updates
I was very pleased to be a part of 2009 Global MVP summit this year. We hosted three help industry MVPs last week. Eight Help sessions over two days by various speakers were well received. We received great feedback during these sessions. Rob Chandler has posted few pictures from this summit here - http://www.helpmvp.com/Home/photos/2009-summit and is connecting us through a Help3 Facebook group here - http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=70197449895.
Help 3 Viewer for Visual Studio 2010 is shaping up well. We did demos at PDC and at the MVP summit. I will blog details on Help 3 attributes shortly.
I will release a version of Sandcastle supporting Help 3 attributes after we ship Beta 1 of Visual Studio 2010.
I have a new role within Microsoft and it's challening/exciting! I will be leading the program management efforts at MSDN/TechNETPublishing System (MTPS). In addition to Sandcastle efforts I will be driving innovation into MSDN/TechNET/Expression Library. I plan on starting weekly blogs about my new area at http://blogs.msdn.com/innovation/. Hope you all can join me at the Innovation blog.
