July marks the start of the year for a lot of organizations, and Microsoft is one of them. We may still have six months of 2009 left, but as far as Microsoft is concerned, it’s already 2010 – Fiscal Year 2010, that is. A new year is the time for doing some looking back at the previous year and planning for the one to come, and that’s what we’re doing right now. The Developer and Platform Evangelism Team at Microsoft Canada and its “extended family” – other groups within Microsoft, as well as our friends at our PR company, High Road Communications – are all gathered at the big FY10 planning offsite, working on all the stuff you’re going to see in the coming year.
The reviewing, planning and brainstorming at the offsite’s keeping us quite busy, so things might be a little quiet here on Canadian Developer Connection over the next couple of days. Think of it as the calm before the storm, because this year’s going to be a big one.
