The new Microsoft .NET Logo launched. Expect to see the new logo all over the place over the next few weeks. The original logo was designed in early 2000, and officially launched with the release of Microsoft .NET 1.0 in January of 2002. I really like the new logo as it goes fairly well with the Live Mesh and Silverlight logo’s. It’s nice to see some new energy at Microsoft over the last little while. Next week should be a huge week for Microsoft with the PDC (Professional Developers Conference) kicking off in Los Angeles. For those that don’t think Microsoft innovates anymore, you should really check out the PDC.
Next week you will hear some major announcements centered around things like the Microsoft Could OS, Silverlight, Microsoft .NET 4.0, Live Mesh, Visual Studio Team System, ASP.NET 4.0, Team Foundation Server, Windows 7, Microsoft Dynamics, Windows Communication Foundation, Microsoft XNA Game Studio, SQL Server 2008, Dublin, Oslo, Exchange Web Services, SharePoint , F#, Expression Studio, and a ton more.
It’s an exciting time to be a software developer! Even if you don’t use any of the Microsoft technologies, the things Microsoft is working on will only make your lives better! Microsoft is really starting to push the envelope in so many areas, and competitors have no choice but to try and keep up.
