If you are:

  • Involved in developing software products (aka an Independent Software Vendor) or
  • Considering a “move to the cloud” or
  • both!

Then you should consider joining one or both of these Microsoft UK created LinkedIn groups intended to foster discussion amongst your peers in the industry. Both groups are fairly new but growing and there is already some great discussion happening on them.

UKISVDEV - Developers, Software Architects and CTOs in UK ISVs

This group is for UK based developers, software architects and CTOs who create software products using Microsoft technologies such as Visual Studio 2010, SQL Server 2008, SharePoint 2010, Windows Azure Platform and Windows Phone 7. It has been created by the Microsoft UK ISV technical team to facilitate discussion and networking, share ideas and promote opportunities to get assistance from Microsoft to explore the latest developer technologies from Microsoft. Plus hopefully make new friends and have some fun with all this great technology whilst solving the business needs of our customers!

Cloud Computing – Microsoft UK

This group is for discussion and conversation about Cloud Computing for business purposes. We want to create a friendly and supportive place where you can have confidence that you'll find like-minded people.
