We hope to foster interaction with our audiences with prototypes of cutting edge developer-focused technology well before they are released. These projects are provided as labs which describe scenarios for the new technologies. They represent our latest thinking in specific areas that we want to share with you and have not undergone the rigorous testing required to be released as a product (or part of a product). Therefore, they may not all work perfectly with all the scenarios you may try out, but they should perform well enough as "working prototypes" to convey the general functionality.
We place a great deal of value in your feedback and would be very interested in hearing your thoughts about these labs (the good, bad, and ugly) via several feedback mechanisms available through this site. Your feedback is a critical factor when evaluating which projects (or even particular aspects of a project) move beyond prototype stage to the next engineering milestone.
If you find a lab that really interests you then we would sincerely like to hear from you. What went well, not so well, what would you like added (or even removed), and how will this prototype help your perform your job more easily today and in the future?
Experiment, evaluate, and please join us in the conversation.
