This Past Thursday, I attended one of The Microsoft Best of Ready to Launch Events. This is a smaller, free, half-day seminar highlighting some of the more exciting features of .net 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005. The seminar itself was pretty informative and worth the 4 hours I sat there, but the most exciting part of the event was at the end when you turned in your evaluation of the event they handed you a free version of Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition and SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition. There are only a handful of these free best of events left in the US but I wanted to let you all know. See the link above for remaining dates and locations.

That table says nothing about costs / licenses whatever so it doesn't answer that question, thus I understand there is no small letter in VC express.

The table says the limitations of the express edition compared with the others, ouch no code profiling on express.

I'm traveling on the 29th this month to Seattle's convention. I'm looking forward to it. I'm glad they're not giving out the express edition.

None in Utah :-( But my parents live in PA, I'm going to try to convince my dad to make the 4-hour drive to Homestead for the one on the 1st. Great link!

I was at the Launch event in my city last Tuesday, and I thought it was fairly interesting as well.

I have to agree though, the best part is getting hundreds in free software :)

I went to the one here in Edmonton (Alberta, Canada) last Tuesday and got myself a free copy of Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition. I too, am glad that they didn't just give away the express editions.

Hm... Too bad, there are no such free launch events here in Germany.
Well... Actually, there's a two-days event in February, but it costs 400 EURO.
But, you get a Professional version on that event. Still pretty cheap: 400 for a Professional!
... Damn it, I just need a Standard version :-)
