Developer Perks

Occasional Visitor

I was wondering why microsoft is not offering developer perks for developers that build skills for cortana. Amazon and google both offer perks for their platforms and I think it would be a nice acknowledgment for developers who work very hard on building up this platform. It does not have to be anything expensive, even a cortana developer sweatshirt would be acceptable. @microsoft Can you explain why this is not done?

I'd love to see more perks for developers of Cortana. Nadella has said that he's confident that Cortana will be successful (https://winbuzzer.com/2018/02/01/cortana-lives-will-beat-alexa-claims-nadella-xcxwbn/). However, I'd love to see more support for developers, more 'perks' to help draw in some of the developers. Otherwise, I see it becoming a Windows Phone/Zune/Groove Music product. Excellent product, just not backed well by Microsoft management. 

 

 

Even a t-shirt is a nice incentive for those on the fence for developing on Cortana. 

Yes this would be nice.

Maybe when these skills have a cost center, we are offered some credit to use 3rd party skills to augment and enhance ours.

I would love to see some financial model that allows devs to create experiences on top of existing skills with a lower cost model than what is provided to existing end users.
