Arpan Shah of the SharePoint Product Team announced that May 12 is the official launch date for SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010 -- with Release to Manufacturing set for April. Excitement continues to swell and the number of potential early adopters seems to be on the rise. Woody Windischman breaks the launch down succinctly in his blog with some key points to consider regarding SharePoint Designer.
Microsoft previously announced that the launch date for Visual Studio 2010 will be April 12. Having worked with the beta, my opinion is that this is going to be the most significant Visual Studio release yet -- especially if you are a SharePoint Developer.
Keep an eye on our blog to see what this means for you. 2010 is going to be an exciting year for SharePoint!
