After being somewhat static since it came on the scene a few months ago, we’re starting to hammer the Team System Developer Center into shape. In this iteration, we’ve cleared out some of the static content and added some areas that will be more dynamic, like a headlines section at the top of the page like you see on other developer centers.
I made several attempts to get new content posted on the AskBurton blog, but that never seemed to pan out. The original idea was to have members of the team post as guest authors every other week. However, just about everybody I approached decided to launch their own blog or was otherwise occupied. Since that was getting stale, we’ve moved my blog (the Visual Studio Team System feed of it to be exact) into that spot on the developer center.
Event though we’re not quite a v1 product yet, I’d like to ask:
- How can we make this site more useful for you?
- What kind of information do you want to see?
- How should we organize the sub-sites, by product (Team Architect, Team Developer, Team Test & Team Foundation) or by role (architect, project manager, developer, tester, team development)?
- How often should the content change?
A special thanks to Christa Carpentiere, who manages our developer center in addition to managing the Data Access and Storage Developer Center, for making all of the changes. Expect to see more updates over the coming weeks.
