Final Posting


My last day at Microsoft will be tomorrow, 3/24/2017.

I really did want to get to some of the old comments that had been neglected but alas, there’s no time.

I’m not sure I will actually lose access to this blog because of the way authorization happens but I think it would be a bad idea for me to keep using it because of its strong affiliation with MS.

Best wishes to all and thanks for reading all these years.

    It was worth following your blog.I hope you continuee….

  4. OMG! Mixed feelings – What a loss to MS but Rico on newer endeavors!

    I grew up (in the industry) reading your perf posts, Rico. I remember your interview where you shared your meeting with Bill Gates and that you (and the .NET team) were competing to surpass performance of native code. Can’t forget!

    May I ask where to?

    Best of luck.

  5. Best of luck, Rico. I’ve enjoyed your posts on performance over the years. And thanks for all you did in moving Visual Studio forward.

    I hope you’ll find time to start your own blog in the future. Eric Lippert and Eric Lawrence are both good role models in this respect 🙂

  9. We’ll miss you. All the best!
