New Visual Studio Express Available for Download

Posted on May 1, 2007. Filed under: Main, Microsoft, Software Development |

Microsoft has released the newest versions of Visual Studio Codename “Orcas” Express Editions (^), CTP version, for programmers and those who want to be programmers to test out.

I’ve been real impressed with the Express Editions that Microsoft started putting out with the release of Visual Studio 2005 (^).  Even though they’re not as “powerful” as the regular versions (Standard, Professional, Team), they’re great for starting out; in fact, the new Express Editions are as powerful as Visual Studio .NET 2003 Standard!  These versions are aimed at those who are interested in programming, specifically students and hobbyists, but don’t want to shell out hundreds of dollars on software that they would normally use to program with.  With the Express Editions, and the large number of Web sites dedicated to sharing how it’s done, it’s easy to jump right in.

Here’s a couple of places to get you started:
