Hi, all, and welcome to another issue of the MSDN Flash
I am delighted to be taking over the role of editor. Caroline has done a fantastic job for the past year, and I wish her well in her new role in Singapore. So, this makes two MSDN Flash editors who have moved on to roles in Singapore. Will I be a third? Never say never, but I have done my time as an international jet-setting man of technology.
Let me introduce myself. I've been at Microsoft for 13 years, in a variety of roles. I am a pretty active blogger, with a number of sites, both personal and work-related. I'm also Melbourne born and bred, but my family is well entrenched in Sydney these days. I have four children; three boys (Antony, Billy, Brice) and one wonderful daughter (Emma), and a very patient wife (Moira).
I run the Technical Evangelism team here at Microsoft, and have a fantastic group of people who do the real work, day in day out. In the coming months, I will be introducing you to each of the team members.
At the moment, we are getting the final stages together for Tech.Ed 2004. Having spent my first two years with Microsoft in Canberra, I remember how cold it gets in August - I strongly suggest lots of layers.
Much more to say, but I will leave that to the next instalment.
Until next time, happy coding
