Visual Studio Events, Microsoft Campus, Reading - 17th & 14th Sept

Hello to anyone who attended one of the Visual Studio Events in Reading over the last couple of weeks.  I promised to upload some links to useful resources, training and the presentation so I will try and get that done by the end of the week.

In the meantime I've added some links to the trial versions and service packs that you might need if you want to have a play with the features I demonstrated.

I'm off to Manchester this evening as I'm presenting at TestExpo 2008 tomorrow, so if you find yourself at that event then feel free to pop over to the Testhouse stand and say hello.
