I think one of the most interesting things I heard all week were the constant remarks along the lines of “Microsoft sure kept that secret. I had never heard of it!” This was said in reference to such technologies as Microsoft Workflow Foundation and Microsoft Expression. It’s good to know that as a company we can still keep something under wraps until it’s quality-ready for customers to touch and play with.
On a more personal level, I was also very pleased to be able to meet so many customers and answer their questions regarding MSDN and its future. Mostly people were very pleased with our work and for those that had specific issues, the beta of the new site and new search capability certainly made them happy. In my next post, I’ll detail exactly what we we’re working on in terms of present and upcoming MSDN improvements.
