Los Angeles Convention Center – Booth #908 — September 12, 2005 — JetBrains™, Inc., creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing development will preview ReSharper™ 2.0, a Visual Studio add-on that brings powerful refactoring tools, intelligent code-completion features, on-the-fly error highlighting capabilities, and much more at Microsoft’s Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in Los Angeles this week. The company will also demo its new innovative profiling tool, dotTrace, which enables .NET developers to profile applications and quickly identify performance bottlenecks.

ReSharper 2.0, scheduled for release later this fall, will be compatible with Microsoft’s new Visual Studio .NET 2005, which also will preview at the show.

JetBrains will hold drawings at booth #908 for 10 free ReSharper and 10 free dotTrace licenses to be awarded each day during the three-day show. Visitors who don’t win on one day will remain eligible for subsequent drawings.
