We in the Developer & Platform Group in Microsoft Corp. are about to kick off our early adopter program for ISVs (the successor to the Ascend / Touchdown programs – see http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/isv/bb190411.aspx – that some of you may have been involved in).

Microsoft is committed to ensuring that partners engaged in our early adopter programs have all the resources necessary to build applications for the seven technologies included in the program this year:  SQL Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, 2007 Office, Microsoft Dynamics, and Web UX.  Once enrolled, you will be able to view “tracks” associated with each technology and choose from several different areas of concentration.  You will be able to profile your company’s application, invite your colleagues to use the system, get technical support, learn about instructor-led and on-demand training, and more.

If you are an ISV / partner in Ireland and are interested in enrolling then please contact me to check your eligibility and to learn more about the program. If you want to learn more about the above technologies and are planning to start using them within the next 6-9 months then this program will give you the resources you need to make the best use of these technologies.
