Well, I am actually considering going (I just don't want to join Yahoo to
do it). I don't have a problem with any of the techies I have met from
Microsoft, but I have a knee-jerk reaction when something looks like
"hidden evangelism" (makes me envision isolate-and-hard-sell tactics).
This sounds to me like a good way to learn about .NET and/or C#. But I
would have been upset if I did not know that before I went.
Tangentially, is ".ms" the microsoft top level domain?
