The Xircuit team took the opportunity of attending and exhibiting at Microsoft’s Visual Studio Partner Summit 2017 in Redmond, Washington in September 2017. This exclusive annual event for Visual Studio partners hosted by the Visual Studio Partner Program is a great to connect with our partners at Microsoft and to share our thoughts, plans, and proposed opportunities for the upcoming month as well as providing a quick look 'under the hood' of our product for the Visual Studio Partner Community.
All about Ashley, the Xircuit parent company, is a Premier member of the Visual Studio Partner Program. Through this program, we access marketing and technical benefits, which enables us to support the latest versions of Microsoft developer products. During the Technology Showcase at the Partner Summit 2017, we highlighted the latest development of Xircuit and invited attendees to join our upcoming beta. Microsoft staff from the Enterprise and Partner sales organizations, and management and staff from the Microsoft Developer Tools groups had also been invited to the expo. A compelling opportunity for us to showcase our product and roadmap to Microsoft.
The Visual Studio product teams, from .NET, to mobile, to all the tools that support a DevOps environment, were also sharing their roadmaps and future opportunities for partners. Deep dives with these teams throughout the summit in a series of workshops to explore the newest features in 15.3 or the APIs behind Visual Studio Mobile Center completed our trip to Redmond.
