Build 2014 Recap: S. Somasegar Interview

DevExpress Data Blog
07 April 2014

One of the best parts of attending Microsoft conferences is the access we have to the people building the very tools we use day in and day out. S. Somasegar is the Corporate Vice President of the Developer Division at Microsoft. I was delighted to spend some time asking questions about some of the interesting announcements at BUILD 2014. Topics varied from Universal Windows Apps to open sourcing C#. We also talked about some of the fantastic developments with Azure and how they have improved their PaaS offerings. We also discussed what Microsoft intends to do to support those of us still on ASP.NET WebForms as well as WinForms. Would love your thoughts about what he said as well as the overall direction Microsoft is taking. As I have mentioned in earlier posts, I really like the new openness Microsoft is espousing with its developers. Enjoy!

As always, if there are any comments and/or questions, feel free to get a hold of me!
