I love the new Open Source path Microsoft have taken.

I tweeted about a question, about having to pass a “dummy” string to a constructor, in WAML and only 4 days later the question was addressed and a new nuget version was up and ready with the fix

In the past weeks I have been working with the Windows Azure Management Libraries (WAML), a nuget prerelease package from Microsoft, that I expect to soon go into a stable release. I want to blog some more about that also, but for this post I just wanted to state how I love the path Microsoft have taken. As a developer on their platform and products, the joy from working with new stuff just becomes ten times more fun when you can see things shape and it not being years between updates.

A good example was how I tweeted about a question, about having to pass a “dummy” string to a constructor, in WAML and only 4 days later the question was addressed and a new nuget version was up and ready with the fix.

Just wanted to credit Guang Yang  and Brady Gaster ( and every one else at the WAML teams) and say keep up the good work. It makes a difference.
