I’ve been asked several times how it was going from an older version of Visual Basic to the newest edition, which is part of Visual Studio 2010. Microsoft has released a free e-book dedicated to help you transition from Visual Studio 2003 and up to Visual Studio 2010. Grab it if you are moving up, or if you are planning on it in the near future.
Moving to Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 was written with three audiences in mind:
Part I is for developers moving from Visual Studio 2003 to Visual Studio 2010.
Part II is for developers moving from Visual Studio 2005.
And Part III is for developers moving from Visual Studio 2008.
