Finding UK-specific information for Microsoft developers
While us lot at Microsoft are pretty much aware of where to find things on the ms.com website, it's all too easy to forget that not everyone is as close to (or obsessed with) this stuff as we are.
So I thought it work posting a few links to useful areas of the UK MSDN website that you might not have seen recently. Most of these links have a developer focus, there is of course tons of other stuff for other IT Professionals, business users, consumers, etc but I wanted to keep this tight on the links that I think are most useful for UK developers.
And not to forget of course that if you sign up to MSDN Connection (www.microsoft.com/uk/msdn/connection) you'll be able to indicate the technology areas you're interested in and as a result get better targeted information when you visit the MSDN website.
