Another great Microsoft event in the bag. This week Richard Campbell (of ".NET Rocks!" fame), Sara Faatz of Progress Software and I headed to Las Vegas to hang out with 14K other Microsoft partners and to host a developer-focused Twitter party. Check out Richard Campbell's Twitter feed to see all of the posts - lots of great technical content plus we shot some great video as well. Companies like Docker, GrapeCity, Infragistics, LEADTOOLS, Syncfusion, Progress and many more contributed content and prizes. If you didn't attend Inspire, check out my favorite developer session "DevOps on Azure: loved by developers, trusted by the enterprise". There's some great stuff on open source investments, customer insights and partner opportunity.
