Hi all,

I've launched a service called MSTechZone. It targets people who work in professional capacity with official Microsoft and complementary/derived/related technologies (such as LLBLGen Pro).

The first stage of the service is to supply professional (as in no Xbox news or the like) and relevant news & technical articles about the entire Microsoft ecosystem.

All and any feedback (helpful? what needs to be improved, etc.) is welcome.

edit: the link -> http://www.mstechzone.com/

Best regards,
Samuli Lintunen
MSTechZone

Ps. LLBLGen Pro is powering the DAL of this service. Regular Smiley

Thanks Frans. I've learned a ton from you and other forum members during the course of building the service. Sales pitch for LLBLGen Pro (with LINQ): it's such a smooth experience that in itself also helped keep up the motivation to go forward. Regular Smiley

Look's nice, I found some good links there.

Might need some styling especially in the home page, maybe some more height and sace for the "About Us" & "What's in it For Me?" sections.
A nice banner for the header would be nice too.

Good Luck.

Walaa, cool. Glad it can help.

Filtering appropriate news is tricky 'cause don't want to let the floodgates open for useless news with too little filtering but at the same time there can't be too much either or there'd very little news at all. Hence, improving the filtering system is an ongoing challenge. Some irrelevant news items (in professional sense) are bound to slip through.

That's a good proposition about the "About Us"/Benefits page. I thought I'll keep them on the front page for the opening months and then move them to separate pages. Banner could be snazzy but I'm hoping to support some of the higher res mobile devices / netbooks by the current "tight" (page starting at the very top), simple (little graphics) and liquid layout without resorting to custom mobile pages.

Thanks for the feedback. All feedback goes to my idea/todo list for processing. Regular Smiley
