On Thursday I had the pleasure of delivering a session at the High-Tech Mizpe Ha-Yamim event for decision makers (VP R&Ds, CTOs, and CIOs) in the beautiful and tranquil Safed/Rosh-Pina area. My talk focused on Visual Studio 2013 and how it can make developers’ lives better by improving productivity and collaboration, making it easier to diagnose difficult problems in development and production environments, and helping explore large amounts of existing code.
