Visual Studio Live! gives you plenty of coding deep dives, but kick off the show with this lively discussion on the big picture around Microsoft, its products and its place in the tech world going forward. Blue Badge Insights founder and Visual Studio Live! Co-Chair Andrew Brust will interview ZDNet’s “All About Microsoft” blogger Mary Jo Foley, covering everything from Microsoft’s future product roadmaps to its most promising research projects – and exploring how all the Redmondian dots will connect (or won’t) in the coming months and years. Audience questions and participation will be welcome and encouraged. Come with your best Microsoft-centric questions, quibbles and insights.
