I would encourage you to pop along to one of these Innovation Days if you are a UK ISV interested in understanding how to partner with Microsoft. They were popular last time around but we seem to have had a much larger gap than expected. The good news is they are back and David has the technology slot to deliver - which gave us something to ponder over during breakfast today.
"Whether an existing or new ISV/developer partner we would like to take an opportunity to deliver our roadmap to maximise your partnership with Microsoft. We have listened closely to our partners and have created this roadmap specifically with our ISV/developer partners in mind. Please join us at one of the following events to learn how you can gain access to the latest technology, market opportunities, and sales and marketing resources. You’ll also be able to network with a number of Microsoft developer, sales, and marketing staff, as well as our partners on the day.
