Help us make improvements!

The Microsoft Visual Studio Design Research Team is looking for developers to give us direct feedback on our upcoming development tools, languages and libraries!  Opportunities include usability studies of upcoming features, focus groups, and 1:1 interviews.


We are looking for developers - all kinds!  

Do you need to be a Visual Studio user?   No!   We are looking for all kinds of developers using a variety of tools and technologies.   This includes non-Microsoft tools and platforms that you might use as a hobby.


Why do it?

It's a chance to see and use future tools, features, and language/library enhancements.  It is also an opportunity to work directly with teams to influence the direction and effectiveness of development tools.


How does it work?

We have a brief enrollment form that will ask you a few questions about your job and the development tools and technologies you actively use.  We will contact you as soon as we have a research study that matches your specific background and/or interests.  Enrollment takes 3-5 minutes to complete.
