Wow, it’s been about a year and a half since I posted on this blog and I’ve recently been pinged a few times by folks wondering what I’ve been up to so I figured it was worth checking in.
About a month or so after my previous post (soon after shipping Whidbey), my time on the C# Compiler team came to an end when I moved over to the Deployment Technology Group as the Test Manager. We’re working on several projects all focusing on–surprise, surprise–deployment. We’ve got a team focusing on the Setup Project in Visual Studio, another working on the internal toolset used to author the various VS and .NET Framework SKUs (it’s based on WiX), and a team working on the actual VS/NetFX installer. It’s been a lot of fun and quite challenging and we’ve got some pretty big plans for the future.
Anyway, though I haven’t been blogging on this site for a while I have actually been reasonably active on my personal blog: http://blog.gusperez.com. I’ve been thinking about bringing this blog back from the dead if I find some time to start posting about some more work related items but I won’t promise anything as that’s something I’ve fell short on in the past (just look down about five or six posts and you’ll see what I’m talking about). My other blog is mostly on the geek side though so it may still be of interest to the folks who’ve still somehow remained subscribed to this one all this time.
That’s all for now. Just wanted to pop back in with an update that I originally planned on posting over a year ago. Better late than never I guess…
