Welcome to my blog, V2. (72% recycled material.)

A bit about myself.  I’m an SDET (Software Design Engineer in Test) working on the front end of the Visual C++ compiler.  My day-to-day tasks include running tests, investigating results, submitting bugs, and writing tests to provide extra coverage on existing and new features.  That’s pretty much what I do, day in and day out.  At the time of this writing, my tenure at Microsoft measures mere months.

I aspire to no lofty goals: I’m nobody special.  I didn’t invent this language.  I’d no more give a talk at a conference than run the New York Marathon.  My intent is not to provide a single source for all information about the new C++ implementation of CLR features.  But if you’ve never used the language before, or you’re coming from Managed Extensions, you might find a useful bit here and there on my blog – assuming you can wade through the tripe.

I had another blog.  It was here, but the powers-that-be decided to freeze all the blogs hosted there, and offer to migrate us here, to ASP.NET.  While my content won’t really be related to ASP.NET, it is a convenient place to put my weblog, and really my only option at this time, other than setting up a blog myself (I don’t really have the time), or discontinuing my blog completely, which would be a disservice to my constant readership (2 confused people who were looking for Anna Kournikova pictures, and a very attentive dustball).  Anyhow, hopefully the content from there will be moved here, but there aren’t any guarantees at this time.

    it is good for you to continue blogging, even though it looks a little irrelevant with asp.net. not that weird anyways.

    Unfortunately, my blog content IS somewhat orthogonal to ASP.NET. There was a lot of internal discussion surrounding the closure of the GotDotNet blogs, and it was eventually determined that the best place for the orphaned bloggers from that system was here at ASP.NET. Mostly because the infrastructure was already in place, the system was proven robust and well tested, and it could handle the extra traffic. The solution isn’t optimal, I agree, but hopefully better than the alternatives.
