Interesting to see that we've just hired John Lam. Soma reports:
I am excited to announce that John Lam will be joining the .NET Developer Platform team in January 2007. John comes with a great background in dynamic languages. He implemented the popular RubyCLR, which is a Ruby bridge to the .NET Framework. John is currently a partner in ObjectSharp and has worked with Microsoft Technologies for a long time at Wintellect, DevelopMentor, Corel, etc.
John will be a Program Manager in the CLR team focused on helping make .NET a great platform for dynamic languages. You can read more about this at John’s blog.
