Last night, the Boston .NET User Group held a Boston Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005 Cabana Night in conjunction with the official launch of the world tour of these great products.
I debated about joining the VS2005 or SQL2005 room topics (as I have touched both over the last year or so), but decided on VS2005. There were a lot of great questions on licensing, new ASP.NET features, C#/VB.NET language features, Team System, etc. Unfortunately, there were no direct security questions, but there was a question about WSE 3.0. The concensus was to skip WSE 2.0 (which is really using .NET 1.1 anyway) and go straight to WSE 3.0 (which leverages the new .NET 2.0 features). The good news, which wasn't that clear last night, is that the WSE 3.0 Final was officially released yesterday as well. Go fetch!
