We’re a couple of weeks into spring, and although the weather’s unseasonably cold as I write this, things are warming up on a number of our platforms. First, there’s Internet Explorer 9 , which went into general release a couple of weeks ago. It’s received a fair bit of praise, millions of installers have been downloaded and it comes packed with standards, speed and safety. We’re also pushing out the first update of Windows Phone 7 OS , which brings copy and paste and improved performance to apps. We’ve also recently updates the development tools and tutorials, all of which you can find at the App Hub. And finally, we’ve been making continual improvements to Azure, including the “Extra Small” instance that lets you try out a cloud platform without spending a lot.

Along with these updates come a good number of events. On the IE9/WP7 side, we’ve got free boot camps taking place across the country, where we’ll show you how to write applications that make the best use of our browser and phone. For Azure, we’ve got two kinds of get-togethers: AzureFests, which are hands-on, bring-your-computer events where you get walked through the process of deploying applications to the cloud, and ISV Azure training sessions, where ISVs can learn about what Azure can do for them and how to get started building cloud applications. Be sure to check the Canadian Developer Connection blog for the latest news on these gatherings. We’ll also have a lot of announcements and sessions online from the upcoming MIX conference (April 12 — 14 in Las Vegas) with a lot of interesting material on our web, cloud and phone platforms.
