Developer to Developer is a place filled with tips, tricks, and stories of battle from your fellow coders. Some of the best stuff you can pick up in your career doesn't come from a book or a presentation. It comes from your fellow developer and his experiences. A quick hallway conversation, 15 mins at someone's desk after a "Hey come check this out!".. these are the things that can make a difference!
It's a great way to network with fellow Microsoft folks in your area as well as people from the community.
