Design view dude going away lunch


Today we had going away lunch with Ben (aka Design view dude).
What is that ‘going away lunch’ thing? It is a good Microsoft tradition
to buy a lunch for the entire team when someone leaves.  Have a
lunch together, listen to war stories, say goodbuy to a friend. No, Ben
is not leaving Microsoft.  He is joining another team at Microsoft
which does… well, I can’t tell you what that team does :-). I only
can tell you it is in Windows division.



Anyway, Ben brought you a lot of improvements in VS 2005 Design view:
better table editor, better selection model, stability and security
improvements, tons of bug fixes.



Ben has been with us for more than 5 years. But that’s what is good for
the company: great people move, join new teams, face new challenges and
spread their passion, drive, knowledge and best practices. I was Ben’s
manager and I will be missing him. I wish Ben good luck and I am sure
he will be doing great.
