As you know, we love to come and visit our customers every chance we get (PDC, TechEd and various country tours), but this time we thought we would do something at our place. We are running a Development Laboratory here in Redmond from May 4th through 8th (this definitely does not preclude people from outside Redmond participating however we will not be covering your travel expenses.) Now, what’s a DevLab? Well, essentially developers come to the Platform Adoption Center and bring their projects and source code. We work closely to port their code, file bugs when they hit issues, and listen closely for feedback positive or negative so we can improve our product. We also discuss future directions for the next version of Visual Studio.
Space at the Platform Adoption Center is limited, so we will be able to host only a small number of companies. If you and your company is interested, please go to http://www.microsoft.com/isv/events/vs2010.aspx for specific details about how to apply.
