Visual Studio 2010 Quick Reference Guidance Released

If you’re looking for some quick information regarding the myriad features in Visual Studio 2010, then look no further than the recently published Visual Studio 2010 Quick Reference Guidance.  This is yet another example of a great guidance project released by the Rangers in the past few weeks.

“The Visual Studio 2010 Quick Reference Guidance consists of compact cheat sheets for Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2010 and Visual Studio (VS) 2010, addressing the core problem of teams in the field who are unaware of Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server capabilities or have little time to invest in detailed education.”

This guidance is provided as three separate downloads (a zipped file of XPS documents) containing the following features:

  • Overview (Default Download) – an overview of the guidance and focus areas, contained in one index table and overview quick reference poster.
  • Basic Guidance - a collection of basic guidance sheets, focusing on the “what” are the key features and “why” to consider them.
  • Supporting Guidance  - a set of documents and quick reference posters, supporting the basic guidance sheets.
  • This set of guidance contains some great looking reference posters and quick-reference sheets and is a great place to start when learning about the various features in Visual Studio 2010.
