How Microsoft is abandoning its Access developers

Last week, Wayne Hopkins left a post on the Alpha Software message board detailing the limitations he discovered when he downloaded Microsoft Access 2010. An experienced MS Access developer, Wayne was disappointed with the Web capabilities MSFT Access 2010 was offering.

As the Chief Financial Officer of Q Corporation in California, Wayne vented his frustration over Microsoft's clear abandonment of the small business owner and developer. This isn't the first time I've heard this complaint from an Access developer, so I shot off an e-mail asking Wayne if he would be so gracious as to share his broader views with us on the blog.

I tasked Melissa, an Alpha Software blogger, to get on the phone with Wayne and produce a podcast about his history with Microsoft Access, the specific items that limit developers from taking an Access app to the Web, and how Access really stacks up against Alpha Five.

If you're an Access developer struggling with whether you stay with Access or move to a different platform, there's probably a lot of value in this podcast. Click play and start listening.
