Earlier this week MSDN launched the redesigned pages under code name Tobago. Internally I had the pleasure of viewing the pages for few months and it’s amazing to see the new user experience. Please see a screen shot of the new site below:

MSDN New design

The new design provides a rich "User and Search” Experience. The new design provides the following:

·         Consistent top-level navigation for DevCenters and TechCenters. DevCenters and TechCenters are functionally identical; only the content is different.

  • Create Globalized new User Experience (UX) with the following features:

Navigational Controls

       Section tabs

       Eyebrow - prepend existing eyebrow with Home links and flat list  of centers

       In this section

Content Controls

        Left navigation

        Multi tab control

        Search etc…

Library Integration

      Improved Search with Auto Complete feature.


Nice work MSDN team.
