Microsoft ASP.NET and Web Tools Team (and Azure) AMA!

A few members of the ASP.Net and Web Tools team did an AMA on reddit. Some of the questions that got answered have been in the back of my mind for awhile. Here are a few Q&A’s that stood out.

Less or Sass? A LESS editor will be coming out in VS2013. A SASS editor might come out in the future.

What’s the story with Silverlight? “I think it’s done as far as the Open Web is concerned.” Makes sense since the open web has won.

What aspect of technology are you guys most excited about for the future? “JavaScript and C#. JavaScript is the virtual machine that we don’t have install…it’s in the browser. C# lets me put an app in every app store.”

Any thoughts in making project files exclusionary instead of inclusionary? “The short answer is yes.” OMG This one answer makes me so happy.
