We finally launched an all new MSDN Flash newsletter in the UK today. This is the culmination of a lot of work taking a long hard look at the existing MSDN Flash newsletter and trying to identify all the things we can do to make it more interesting and relevant to developers. We heard your feedback loud and clear that there was not enough UK-specific content and that the newsletter was often just a scattered collection of links to different parts of the website. From now on, each newsletter will begin with a feature article on existing or new technologies, written by myself or one of my colleagues; the remainder of the newsletter will contain links to what we think are the most relevant developer webcasts, events and whitepapers. In short, we want the newsletter to be the one mail from Microsoft that you stop what you’re doing to read!
For those of you who aren’t yet on the subscriber list or have the misfortune to live outside the UK (!), I’ve cached a copy of this week’s MSDN Flash – if you want to keep receiving it, you can subscribe here. So – what do you think? If you don’t subscribe today, why not? Is it the content or just that you don’t like receiving this kind of thing via mail? What would it take to get you to resubscribe if you’ve previously unsubscribed? If you do subscribe already, how can we make it better?
