I may be called MSFT fanboy but I am very excited to be a developer that primarily uses .NET. I want to make great solutions & will #bldwin
The #bldwin masses are flooding the expo, armed with questions for MSFT http://twitpic.com/6kvhwq
If you've been writing WP7 apps, it looks like those skills will translate swimmingly to Windows 8

@miguelcarrasco We've been keeping quiet about that one since the MVP summit :) #bldwin
Went quiet because i am massively engaged with C++ content in packed rooms. Small break between sessions to say "wow!" #bldwin #happycamper
Microsoft has out done themselves with c++/com. Amazing! C# should have little complaints about moving over.
W. Kevin Hazzard
As sad as I was when @devhawk left the DLR team I fully understand why he was THE perfect choice on the WinRT team. This changes everything.
After this little Xaml revolution at #bldwin I seriously need to get my website up. You'll see why, have had domain for two years :D
