Invitation for The Microsoft New Zealand Developers Focus Groups 2008

This is your chance to tell us what you think about Microsoft!

We want to hear from you. Tell us what you love and hate about Microsoft! Every year we use your feedback to improve our products and services. This year, in addition to the annual online survey, we are planning to hold focus groups around the country and are looking for NZ developers to have their say.

Scott Wylie (, the Director of the Developer and Platform Strategy Team for Microsoft NZ, will be facilitating these sessions. Scott’s role is to listen and understand your feedback which will enable his team to provide better support and resources for NZ developers.

If you would like to participate, please email your interest to with your contact details and preferred focus group (by session number as listed below) you would like to attend.
