CodeProject's brief conversation with Dmitry Lyalin, Product Marketing Manager at Microsoft, at Microsoft's Build 2013 conference. We talk about the new features in Visual Studio 2013 -- and how he's involved in listening to developers' requests for new features and advocating to get them involved.
The goal of the interview was not only to hear what he had on his agenda, but also to take him out of his comfort zone a bit and ask him about bigger picture questions – like where development is going, and how developers can and should prepare for the future.

Folks can see my past work at TechEd and C9’S VS Toolbox here:
Jeff has worked with developers and developer communities for 20 years. He is the former Editorial Director of WordPerfect Magazines (remember macros?). He's also the former Editor in Chief and Publisher of Visual Basic Programmer's Journal, Visual Studio Magazine, Java Pro magazine, Visual C++ Developers Journal, Exchange & Outlook Magazine, Enterprise Architect magazine, and Microsoft Architecture Journal. He also worked on the VBITS/VSLive! conferences and the various related websites for those publications and conferences. He has spoken and presented at many tech and marketing industry conferences and events.
He currently works to help businesses understand and reach developers better as part of Developer Media.
All things considered, he'd rather be cycling.
