The Buzz about MSDN Connection


A few of the local Aussie bloggers have been venturing forth with their opinions on MSDN Connection such as Mitch Denny, Chris Garty, Darren Neimke and William Bartholomew. Thanks for your comments guys! Keep'em coming!


We have also had a few folks from around the world wondering about this program and when it will be seen in their part of the world.


Well, consider this the beta test of a program that will roll out globally. So far MSDN Connection is live in a number of Asia-Pacific countries, such as Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and of course Australia.


So what are you waiting for - if you are an Aussie developer join now!

  2. Frank,

    Just went to the http://www.msdnconnection.com. The link to the Australian site wasn’t enabled. Can you get it fixed? I know that you can get to the Australian registration site from http://www.microsoft.com/australia/msdn/connection/. However, it would be nice if you were able to click through.

    Cheers

    Why join the program? What exactly does it provide in return for me having to provide all my personal details? Does it provide newsgroups or mailing lists or articles or what? If not, what exactly does it contribute?
