Unravelling hidden tricks and tips in Visual Studio 2017

PRESENTER:
Justin Clareburt, Senior Program Manager for the Visual Studio team based in  Redmond

SESSION ABSTRACT:

Come along and join Justin Clareburt from Microsoft Redmond in this informal look at the Visual Studio 2017 IDE. While he claims to know more hidden tips and tricks than anyone, I’d love to see our user group members teach Justin a trick or two while he’s here sharing many productivity tips to make you drive Visual Studio like a boss!

The plan for our meetup is to have a fun interactive session where we can all play around with VS2017 showing off our favourite features and discussing ideas. As usual they’ll be lots of chit-chat. And eating bacon. And muffins. And more bacon :)
