Welcome to my new blog. I just moved to the Common Language Runtime team here in rainy Redmond, after spending nearly seven years in sunny California developing storage services for Hotmail (now Windows Live Mail). Luckily, I spent three years prior to that here in Redmond developing tests for Windows 2000, during which time I learned to love the rain. Hopefully my wife and kids will come around to my view soon. 🙂
I plan to use this blog to discuss the usual interesting details of our system that I come across in the course of my work here, and that I think might be valuable to the developer community at large, but for now I probably don't know much more than you do about the inner workings of the CLR. I'd also like to use this forum to discuss some of the philosophy of software development, and how it relates to the CLR, programming languages, and you.
Enjoy, and please let me know if there's anything else you'd like to see here.
