So, I bet I know what you're thinking right now...if only there were a new Microsoft employee who was an experienced developer but was new to Exchange development that would create a new blog site only a week into his employment so that I could follow his progress as he learns about developing on Exchange...and it'd be really great if that happened right before Exchange "12" comes out so that I can follow his experience through that whole thing too!
So? How close was I?! Well, that's what you're gonna get. I am a new Support Engineer for the DSI - Messaging & Collaboration team at Microsoft. I used to work for a Microsoft Gold Partner in Richmond, VA called TCSC (The Computer Solution Company) where I focused primarily on .NET and SharePoint development.
I don't have a ton of experience developing for Exchange & Outlook, but I thought it would be cool to share my experiences with you so you can learn with me. Hopefully, over time this will become a good resource for people trying to get into Exchange development.
