  • Blog Post: Developers in New York City

    Our final two focus groups were held last night in New York City on Park Ave South. We had the lowest turn out in NY, maybe because it was Martin Luther King day. The range of amounts we pay developers to come to the focus groups is interesting. In Silicon Valley they got $200 for spending 2 hours with...
  • Blog Post: Silicon Valley Software Developers

    I am in San Jose today at San Jose Focus doing focus groups with developers. I started out in Silicon Valley working with developers ... I even married one. (Those of you who know me, though, know I'm now married to a sales guy who works at Microsoft!) Developers from Applied Materials, eBay, HP and...

A number of our subsidiaries now...

    Soma just announced the Community Content feature for Visual Studio 2005 documentation & the .NET 3.0 Class Library on MSDN Online. The Community Content feature allows developers to extend the official online documentation by adding tips, notes, code examples, and other information. Because the...
  • Blog Post: A little bit goes a long way

    Part of my role at Microsoft is to touch developers that don't normally have direct contact with Microsoft. They don't necessarily (but might!) work for a Fortune 500 company or buy lots of s/w each year. In my experience these "unmanaged" devs as we call them are some of the best devs around! Microsoft...
