This is the first thing I worked on when I joined the team last year…
“Besides his review in ADT, Mike Gunderloy also posted a more in-depth positive review of Visual Web Developer on Developer.com recently. The review was also positively highlighted in Brad Jones’ Code Guru Newsletter this week (something Brad seldom does). The review clearly defines the audience, takes you through the steps to build a Web application (unlike his other review) and praises Microsoft for doing a “superb job of making data-backed Web applications easy with VWD.” Although he does admit that the title, Data to Web in Five Minutes with Visual Web Developer 2005, is not entirely accurate (doesn’t take into consideration the download time) he does note that the first beta is “pretty darned amazing”.”
I was the sole product designer for Microsoft Visual Web Developer Express. Jump forward in the video to time marker 3:25 to see a demonstration of the IDE's user interface.
