A Feed You Should Read #9 – 10-4

Today’s “feed you should read” is another one of those “a feed you should watch” feeds and is in honor of this past week’s release of Visual Studio 2010 and /Net 4.0 Beta 2.

Channel 9 - 10-4 Show



The 10-4 is a semi-regular video cast that focuses on Visual Studio 2010 and .Net 4. From downloading & installing to using the many new features, the whole gambit is covered in short, 30’ish minute, video casts. Visual Studio features, MEF, MVC, ASP.NET, ADO Data Services, WCF, F#, VB, etc, etc are all there.

It might not be the single “one stop shop” for all things VS2010/.Net 4, but more of the “one drive thru” for the good stuff in VS2010/.Net 4. Kind of like the “In-N-Out” for the coming release(s)  ;)

Why do I like this feed and think you might also?

You mean, besides the clever name? Another reason is needed? sigh… ok… 

I dig the shows because they are short, focused on a specific area, are given by people who know their stuff and have a passion for what they are showing.

There’s almost too much in coming release; there’s so much, it is easy to get lost and paralyzed by choices. These shows give you byte sided information chunks to get you started. They are not, currently, in-depth nor are they intended to be, think survey course, overview, wet your appetite shows.

Look. NOW is the time to start getting up to speed on VS2010/.Net4. If you start next March when it’s released, you’ll be buried, you’ll already be too late. Do it a little at a time and by March you’ll be able to hit the ground running.
