You must bring a laptop. DeVry has tables with outlets so don’t forget that power supply. We recommend more than 1 Gb of RAM and at least 10 Gb of free disk space. External USB or Firewire drives really help. We will help you get organized and install the right software for continued virtual fun! We have Internet access but you need to bring an Ethernet cable. If not, make sure that all required software is on your machine when you arrive.
There are two approaches for this lab. Install Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 directly on your laptop. If you can’t run Visual Studio 2010 on your laptop, prepare a virtual environment. The easiest way to do this is to install the Microsoft evaluation of Team System. Please download the following and use Virtual PC or Virtual Server:
- Team Foundation Server 2010 with Team Suite (this image expires in April 2010, includes SharePoint Services 3.0, SQL Server 2008, Office 2007, and Visual Studio 2010, Team Foundation Server 2010)
We will demonstrate new ASP.NET features by using labs from the free training kit for VS 2010 and .NET 4.0. Download and install this kit:
