The MSDN Library is an essential source of information for developers using Microsoft® tools, products, technologies and services. It includes how-to and reference documentation, sample code, technical articles, and more. To find the content you need, browse the table of contents or use search. To get the latest MSDN headlines sent to you via e-mail, you can sign up for the MSDN Flash Newsletter.
There are two MSDN Library features that will help you get the information you need:
Version: the version control lets you easily identify which version of a topic (past, current, or beta) you are reading, and enables you to move to other versions of the topic easily.
Locale: you will be automatically shown the local-language version of a topic. If the local version has not yet been published, you will see the content in English with navigation offered in the local language.
The Visual Studio 2008 MSDN Library is organized as follows:
* Visual Studio: is a complete suite of tools for building both desktop and team-based enterprise Web applications.
* Visual Studio Team System: is a platform for productive, integrated, and extensible software development life-cycle tools that helps software teams by improving communication and collaboration throughout the software development process.
* Video How Tos: show you how to complete a particular programming task. The videos correspond to the documentation in the MSDN Library, and link to the articles they are based on.
* Technical Articles: additional information from where you can learn some stuff.
