The user experience team for Silverlight is looking to get some feedback on some of their latest designs for Silverlight application templates and perhaps more.  Instead of getting this feedback only internally, I thought it would be good to help them get external feedback as well from people using our platforms.

You don’t have to go anywhere and don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home.  They’d like about 30-45 minutes of your time online to talk and take a look at things.  You’ll be an early previewer of these designs and can help shape how developers and designers leverage them in their applications.

NOTE: Since you’d be previewing early work that hasn’t been disclosed, you may be required to agree to a non-disclosure agreement.

As a thanks for providing your feedback, you’ll be able to receive some software – contact the organizer below for details on that as I don’t have them right now.  Here are the requirements to participate:

  • You are NOT a software developer/programmer
  • You do not have any software development background
  • You are not a designer (visual, graphic, interaction etc)
  • You do a lot of web browsing, read content online and watch media content online
  • You don’t work for Microsoft :-)

I know this sounds weird posting this here – as I’m basically asking for non-geeks :-).  But I believe this exercise would help you as a developer/designer get your customers understanding how design impacts applications.  Please encourage your consumer friends and customers to participate.  If you are interested in participating in the study, please contact Vidya at [email protected] with the following details: Name, occupation, number of hours web browsing you do per week, and top 3 common sites you visit.  This is first come, first serve participation.

Thanks for helping the Silverlight team make our products and framework better!
