You may have already seen the SharePoint development panel that several of us (Scot Hiller, Maurice Prather, Todd Baginski, Andrew Connell, Eric Shupps, Todd Bleeker, Matthew McDermott) did at TechEd North America 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. It was a great discussion about software development for SharePoint (48 minutes).
I also sat down with David Hill from the patterns & practices group to talk about the work they're doing on version 2 of the SPG. It's 9 minutes.
Of course there's a ton of SharePoint related content at the conference this week -- but most of that requires that you registered for the conference.
