Partner Perspectives : There's a new breed of Web Solution partners

If you work in the ISV / developer end of the market then there is a chance you will have met Katy already, however here is a person who is passionate about people who design and deliver solutions.  When I first sat down and "worked" with Katy (rather than chatting several times previously) it was when I was new to the ISV team and Katy was a beacon of information.  Once we had the ISV "bit" done we then spent a considerable amount of time looking at what designers and web developers needed in life.  Now, as if by magic she now has a new area of focus... read more at  Partner Perspectives : There's a new breed of Web Solution partners.  Oh, and yes, it is about Silverlight, Expression Web and more!!

It’s a really exciting time for anyone working in the web space and Microsoft is creating some fantastic support initiatives and benefits – it’s a real ‘watch this space’!
