Nearly 10 years ago, when I was only 1E years old, I joined the Visual C++ compiler test team to test the new multiple rebuild feature. Since then, I was a lead for testing the whole C++ compiler, helped test a new compiler back end (aka optimizer), and spent the last big chunk of time working on C#, both as a test lead and as a PM.
Now, my Journey on the Circle of Life (actually, a more correct term would be the “Circle of Disciplines” as I move amongst the disciplines from Test to PM to Dev, but I think that “Circle of Disciplines” might have the wrong connotations to some…) continues as I leave the C# team to go to Movie Maker.
I’ll be off next week, and likely will not be blogging much. I’m not sure what I’ll be writing about in my new role – it’s going to take me a while to ramp up and to figure out what I can talk about.
