2. Chance to make a difference to our product
1. Length: 45-60 minutes approx.
2. Venue: Microsoft Redmond Office
3. Time: Flexible between 9am -5pm
Eligibility and pre requisites:
1. Development experience in Microsoft Access esp. with large database application that has >50 objects
2. We need you to bring your own large database (without any sensitive data) .. bonus points for complexity and foreign languages
Please contact us if you are interested and we will get in touch with you. Your help is much appreciated!
Yeah!it's very exciting to have such an Opportunity. But but ... haha, you should know what i want to know.
I go too excited and did not read the venue. Since I am in Australia, it would be a little difficult to get there. Regards, Les
I too,Its a nice Idea of doing such kind of study... But the thing is it is in Redmond, I'm at India. How it is possible.
It will be nice, If MS did these kind of studies in their regional development centers.. Just think of it.. -Naga..
I'm in the Boston are but Redmond is still a no-go for me. To bad, I know a group with and Access front-end with over 400 forms, queries and reports. The data is sensitive though.
Shame as I used to live in Vancouver and would have driven the 3 hours down to see ya but alas I am now in New Zealand which is a shame as I could bring you 2 or 3 apps that have over 500 objects each that use SQL back-ends But alas by you restricting it to Redmond sort of hinders things doesn't it? As another poster said you need to be able to do this from regional centers. All you are going to get are Washington based developers.
Yeah you guys, but they're only interviewing 5-7 people. It makes sense for them to handle it where the primary Access team works out of. I am on the west coast of the usa but not close enough to make a trip to Redmond worthwhile. Besides, I and many other serious Access devs have been pouring out ideas and recommendations for Access over the years and 95% of them just bounce off the Access team...so although I hate to discourage you, I wouldn't get your hopes up that you'd have any impact. I think they're mostly looking for confirmation of whatever direction they've already decided to take.
Have you seen "Up in the Air"?
Poor me! I'm staying in Indonesia.
We might be able to set up something online for those based in the US (and possibly outside US in the future). The compensation incentives may not be the same. So if you are in the US, feel free to send me an email through the blog and I will contact you.
Try something for Namibian developers as well as those keen on learning about your products. Often than not people new to a platform can also give valuable feedback that a developer may not necessarily see as a point, comment of course made in line with user friendliness ;-)
Are the dates correct - May? The Access team is looking for usability feedback. We are looking for 5-7 individuals to give us feedback during the week of 19th or 26th May. Kevin
I am interested and have a complex database.
