David Sklar mentioned my little PHPCon rant and I saw a bunch of traffic coming this way.  Kinda weird.  But it does provide me with an interesting opportunity... to get feedback from PHP folks directly --

So I propose some questions that I discussed in my BOF at PHPCon, looking for more feedback --

  1. How do you feel about Microsoft becoming more present in the PHP community?  Whether through attending events, or sponsorships, or other?
  2. I know there is some demand for PHP on Windows (just ask Shane Caraveo) -- what's your take?  What prevents from exploring it?  Anything that could make it better?  Performance?  Features?  I heard lots of very interesting ideas around this at PHPCon, what's your take?
  3. I'm a glutton for punishment, I survived Sterling Hughes and Thies Arntzen , so I open up the general floor -- what do you want?  What do you think?  Tell me and I promise to listen, that is all I can promise, but I think that is a pretty good start.

I am going to be in Las Vegas for Nov 15-20th at COMDEX, and I think it is also ApacheCon -- anyone going to be around?  Let me know, stop by our Booth (Visual Studio), I'm planning to go visit yours too.

Ok enough blabbering.
