My name is Melitta Andersen, and I started at Microsoft last Monday as a PM in the BCL. I was an intern here last year, and then went back to Carnegie Mellon to finish my CS degree. Since my return to the BCL, I’ve discovered that this blog is a useful tool for getting caught up on what my team has been doing. So I decided to introduce myself to the other people who use it.
It looks like the areas I’ll be working on are System.Resources, System.Globalization, System.Text, and System.*, although things haven’t been set in stone yet. That’s a lot of material to learn, so if there’s anything in those areas that you want to call to my attention, please do. I have one other area that I’m working on, though I don’t know that it falls neatly into a namespace yet. When I was here last summer, my intern project could roughly be described as “do something with numbers,” and I’ll probably be working on numeric things again.
I seem to have picked an exciting time to start, and I’m looking forward to contributing in any way I can.
