Posted on February 14, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Dev with 5 Comments

Microsoft announced today that it will hold a virtual launch event for Visual Studio 2019 on Tuesday, April 2nd.

“I’m excited to announce the upcoming release of Visual Studio 2019 on April 2, 2019 at the Visual Studio 2019 Launch Event,” Amanda Silver writes in a new post to the Visual Studio blog. “Join us online on April 2 starting at 9 AM Pacific Time for demos and conversations centered around development with Visual Studio 2019, Azure DevOps, and GitHub. We’ll have something for everyone, whether you’re a developer who uses C#, C++, or Python or target the web, desktop, or cloud. And, of course, you’ll be one of the first who get to try out the Visual Studio 2019 release.”

The Visual Studio 2019 launch event will be keynoted by Scott Hanselman, who will discuss the new features in this latest release. After that, Microsoft will live-stream several sessions that deep-dive into various features and programming languages.

If you can’t make the virtual event, Microsoft is also taking Visual Studio 2019 on the road for local, in-person launch events between April and the end of June. You can find out more about these events via the Visual Studio 2019 local events page.

And ahead of the launch event, Microsoft just delivered Visual Studio 2019 Preview 3, which includes fixes and changes based on feedback. You can download this final pre-release version of the product from the Visual Studio website.
