  6. 6. What now? A lot! What? Why? Who? • Last year a lot of Microsoft products went open source or started as open source • Many products are cross-platform, moving Microsoft away from the “Windows only company” stigma. • Azure supports multiple OS • Our training and research papers are openly available.
  7. 7. What now? Why does Microsoft do this? What? Why? Who?
  8. 8. What now?What? Why? Who? IT makes sense • We live in a post-product world - paying for software in a fixed state feels wrong. • Developers don’t want to concentrate on one environment, but have choices • People having already worked with your products are easier to hire and cheaper to on-board.
  9. 9. It makes sense • Open Source and Creative Commons projects turn a company from someone you buy from into a source of information. • Employees love the option to keep working on a project, even when they left the company for something else. • It is easier to contribute to a project and tap into other people’s skills than doing everything yourself.

  33. 33. TypeScript http://typescriptlang.org • “JavaScript that scales” - JavaScript with all the features Java/C# developers always wanted to have • High adoption by third parties (Angular/Dojo) • Allows to transpile into older ECMAScript versions for interop • Open Source from the get-go. What now?What? Why? Who?
  34. 34. TypeScript http://typescriptlang.org What now?What? Why? Who? https://slack.engineering/typescript-at-slack-a81307fa288d A smart static type checker increases our confidence in our code, catches easily made mistakes before they are committed, and makes the code base more self-documenting.
  35. 35. TypeScript What now?What? Why? Who? https://medium.com/@tomdale/glimmer-js-whats-the-deal-with-typescript-f666d1a3aad0 Most transpiled languages exist because they want to correct some perceived deficiencies in JavaScript. It’s hard to quantify, but you can feel the respect that the TypeScript team has for JavaScript. They’re not trying to rescue an inherently flawed language; instead, they’re trying to help a language they love reach new heights.
  36. 36. What now? What’s next and how can you help? What? Why? Who?
  37. 37. Presence! • We need Microsoft-knowledgable presenters outside our own events - send in CFPs. • Many online magazines are looking for guest authors - even for pay - and we have a team to connect you to them • Our evangelism team is often forced to decline conferences and need people to offer as an alternative What now?What? Why? Who?

  39. 39. Information • Windows changed a lot and by adding Bash we have a lot of things Mac and *nix users needed to consider switching. It is important to be up to speed on that. • The Surface Book is an exciting piece of hardware for developers • Switching from OSX to Windows is confusing - help people if you can What now?What? Why? Who?
  40. 40. Information • Many of our newer products are available independent of our development chain • We have to stop starting tutorials with “Let’s openVisual Studio…” • There is no lack of prejudice against Microsoft (EEE) What now?What? Why? Who?
  41. 41. A new beginning • Help us getting rid of Internet Explorer dependencies • Explain customers the benefits of Cloud First instead of in-house maintenance and its dangers of stagnation • Read the blogs of product groups and follow them on Twitter • Don’t wait for //build to stay up-to-date What now?What? Why? Who?
  42. 42. Translations • Many Open Source projects lack contributors because there are no materials in other languages than English • It helps a lot to write about these projects in a different language • Contribute translations to open projects What now?What? Why? Who?
  43. 43. • Open Source is all about taking initiative and starting to contribute - no sense in waiting to be asked • Contribution doesn’t mean to support and advocate projects • It can also mean creating something on your own or take part in other projects as a Microsoft expert Dare to take initiative What now?What?
