The study starts on 31st of July and runs until the 2nd of August – please get in touch with Steven to arrange a convenient time.
You’ll need to make your own way to Microsoft’s Edinburgh office (it’s pretty much at Waverley railway station)
You’ll have to sign an NDA to participate as the prototypes are confidential. It’s a great opportunity not only for an early look at some ideas Microsoft has, but more importantly for an opportunity to significantly influence the direction Microsoft take.
Please contact Steven if you are interested.
Tenth the in the Twelve Podcasts of Christmas 2008!
Stealing a show naming scheme from the NxtGenUG chaps, this is “The One With The Semi-naked man in…”
Luckily it wasn’t our guest, esteemed Internationalisation expert and Microsoft MVP Guy Smith-Ferrier. Andy Westgarth, myself and Guy sat down on the most comfortable seat at this event and chatted about Guy’s session, his user group DotNetDevNet and a host of other things. I decided to edit out the semi-naked man scene in order to keep the flow, however I put it back in near end of the show…every podcast should have a man clad only in boxer shorts, yes?
Despite what it might sound like in this recording, no money changed hands…there will be no cash for questions here, no sir.
I reviewed Guy’s book, .NET Internationalization, over here.
Photos of the event can be found here.
