TechEd DEV315 VSTricks – New Projects

In Visual Studio past, creating a new project or solution was harder than it is today with 2010. The reasons are numerous, but the biggest time saver is New Project Type filtering. Need a console app? Just start typing “cons” and the list of all possible project types on your system are displayed. You can also download new Microsoft or Community project types. This is great, great, great news. Visual Studio is getting to the point where it’s no longer just giving you options for what was installed from the DVD, and big installation add-ons. Now you’re able to quickly jump online, grab a new project type (maybe for a new technology) and start using it in seconds.
