Microsoft is holding a Office 15 Developer Kitchen on March 28-31 at Microsoft, Redmond campus, WA, and are looking for Access developers to share their early experiences with us. "The Developer Kitchen is an on-campus event where a small group of our customers use our very early bits and their ingenuity to create Access solutions. This lab experience will give us great feedback and help guide the next stage of our products," stated Microsoft.

The Office-customer-focused event will be free, but attendees will have to pay their own ways to Redmond to attend.

The attendees will have an opportunity to:

  • Get an advance preview of the Access and Office 15 story
  • Chance to spend face time with the product team and build hands-on solutions
  • Identify any major gaps prior to release
  • Provide input for Office 15 and Office 16

Office 15 is believed to be a 2013 deliverable. And, according to early leaks, may feature user interface changes, and possibly some new mystery feature. The Office team also may be on-board with the company's plan to rely on a new framework (codenamed "Jupiter") to provide a common app-store platform that would give the Office team a new way to sell and service Office 15.

All interested are directed to contact as soon as possible as space is limited.
