Fellow .Net Users, Hopefully everyone is recovered from the turkey induced coma that usually accompanies Thanksgiving Day.  As the .Net users group we are thankful to our sponsors, hosts, and especially our speakers that make the group possible.  We’re also grateful to the many people who take part in our meetings, volunteer their time and give ideas on how to improve the group.  Let me take a few moments to recap 2011 for the Omaha .Net user group: January

Please note that this month’s meeting will not take place in the room (or even building) that we typically use at FCSA.  FCSA has a new building with a room specially designed for user group meeting, and this month’s meeting will be held there.  This building is just to the North of the building that we normally hold our meetings in.


Jeff Bramwell

Jeff Bramwell has over 20 years of software development experience and is currently employed as an Enterprise Applications Architect by Farm Credit Services of America.  He has been working with .NET technologies since the early pre-release days (mid 2000) and taught C# at a local university for three years.  Having focused on Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server for the past few years, Jeff leads the Omaha Team System User Group and has presented on Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server at the Omaha .NET User Group, the Heartland Developers Conference, Tulsa TechFest, VSLive!, and others.  Jeff is a Microsoft Visual Studio ALM MVP and, as time permits, answers Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server questions in the MSDN forums and makes every attempt to post useful information on his blog at  You can follow Jeff on twitter at


Visual Studio v.Next – A Look at What’s Coming Visual Studio 2010 was released almost two years ago but Microsoft has been hard at work on the next release. This session will take a look at the myriad features that are being incorporated into the next version of Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server. Some of these features are even available today for use within Visual Studio 2010 if you know where to look. If you want to get a peek at what's coming in Visual Studio v.Next (a.k.a. "Dev11"), then check out this session.
