Main Presentation:

Visual Studio Development Efficiency Tips

– James Sampson (Sparkhound)

Development in Visual Studio can either be slow as a rock, or fast as a cheetah. In this speech, I hope to be able to give some efficiency tips that have come to help me. I will touch base on some Visual Studio Extensions that are useful, Keyword usage, web.config transforms, deployment techniques – with a side step into a Windows Azure deployment concern. This speech will be geared more towards introductory to intermediate developers, but I hope to be able to give everyone a couple of helpful tips they might not have known before.

James Sampson is an Application Support Developer for Sparkhound, working on fixing and enhancing old projects, creating and developing small projects, and learning as much as possible about anything new in development. James currently is focused on Windows Azure, and Microsoft Windows Phone 8. Outside of work, he also enjoys blogging and [not] studying for new certifications.
