MSDN & TechNet are Changing!

Today, the MSDN and TechNet websites are taking a big step forward by updating both the look-and-feel of the sites and, more importantly, what kind of content appears on the site home page and the home pages of mini-sites called Developer Centers and TechCenters.

The new content plan and page layout significantly increases the visibility of community people and community resources, which are essential for technical professisonals and central to our vision of opening the sites up to the community.

While the home pages of each site reflect this, the VB, VC#, and SQL Server centers are better examples, prominently featuring blogs from people in the product groups, MVP blogs, and feeds of related resources from community-powered sites like MSDN Code Gallery and Codeplex and Forums.

Pls let us know what you think of the changes. You can comment on this blog, or get involved in any of these online forums:

This design change is actually just one of several big changes taking place between now and TechEd North America (starts June 3), so stay tuned!
