Obligatory first post

Time to add yet another MS blog to the fray.  I recently migrated from the world of HP to MS about a week and a half ago.  I was at HP for almost 6 years working as a Software Design Engineer.  In that time, I managed to publish a few articles in various Fawcette magazines as well as 2 books: SAMS Teach Yourself Visual C++ .NET in 24 Hours and Microsoft Visual C# .NET 2003 Developer’s Cookbook.  So, I am one of those that has programming skills as well as writing.

It comes as really no surprise to myself that I was hired on as a Programmer Writer, a position that requires good programming know-how in addition to writing prowess.  My main area of focus will be the RosettaNet accelerator for BizTalk Server.  With that being the case, I plan on blogging frequently on both RosettaNet and BizTalk.  However, don’t be surprised if I write about something completely different since I like to get my hands dirty in several different technologies.

    What kinds of things do programmer writers write? Documentation? I haven’t heard that title before.. is there a list of Microsoft titles somewhere?

    The cookbook sounds interesting, I’ll have to check it out next time I’m in Borders. Amazon has a couple of really good reviews for it.

    Since you wrote a book on managed C++, you must be very familiar with it. I wonder what you think of the new C++/CLI?
