Microsoft CEO Dishes Out Compliments To Developers

The CEO of Microsoft hasn’t forgotten about the importance developers, in case you’re wondering.  Indeed, although he didn’t break out the full shouting-and-dancing-like-a-madman routine as in the past, developers got a shout-out of sorts during Steve Ballmer’s keynote at CES.

While using Office 2010 to create a slide, Ballmer wrote “Developers, developers, developers.”  That developers had nothing to do with the subject at hand – which was in theory anatomy – made the reference stand out even more.

Then, according to Angus Kidman, Ballmer said, “Developers baby!  I love the people that built this stuff.”

So there you have it, developers: one of the most important people in the tech world remains a big fan of yours.
