Microsoft Join the Open Ajax Aliance

After initially turning down an invitation to join the Open Ajax Alliance, Microsoft seem to have had a change of heart and have now joined. Bertrand Le Roy from the Atlas team will be attending the meetings. It will be interesting to see how this changes the momentumn of Ajax development and interoperability going forward.

Microsoft do seem to be having a real change in attitude over the past few years. More open communication with developers, more direct contact with developers and managers through blogs, CTP’s and Beta’s, webcasts… will it ever end?

It’s easy to take the cynical approach when Microsoft do things like this but I want to take a positive vibe from all this and will say that I think it’s great Microsoft are getting involved and are prepared to collaborate and integrate rather than innivate in solitude.
