I’m in Seattle this week for the MS MVP Summit.
At the summit MVPs get to spend two full days with the product groups (developers and managers) in their area of expertise. At these sessions mostly the up coming versions and issues/feedback about the current version are discussed. The MVP summit really goes to show how much Microsoft is committed to working with the people out in the field to get, understand, and act upon “real world” feedback.
This year Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer, and Ray Ozzie, chief software architect, are the key note speakers. Last year it was Bill Gates and I think Ballmer were.
