I attended Microsoft "the New Era of Work" event in Detroit last week, which was the official release for Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012. The sessions in developer track were great. But the attendance was very low, no comparison to the excitement when Visual Studio 2010 was launched two years ago. what has happened to the developers?
I had an invite to our local event, but chose not to go since I have no intention of using Visual Studio 2012 and because the VS 2010 event sucked. I just installed VS 2012 for one project from another team that I periodically need to compile for debugging purposes and found it just as ghastly as before.
(The Vista, VS 2005, 2008 and 2010 events I went to were packed. The VS 2005 event was one of the best developer conference-type things I've attended. The VS 2008 was average, though I recall it had separate sessions for C++, C#, SQL and Web developers. The VS 2010 event was horrible--the presenter was actually good, but his presentation awful, irrelevant and very unstructured. He talked mostly about LINQ and how smart and clever the Visual Studio engineers were, but even then his examples were weird and he kept skipping so many steps, he lost just about everyone. Most the people left after lunch. I tried staying the afternoon, but got way too annoyed and bored and left as well.)
