Just wanted to share with you some of the internal-facing work I’ve been doing as of late. Over the past 6 months, I’ve given a series of 3 divisional presentations on giving out Microsoft source code, including
- “How to release code to the community”
- “IP Basics” – I had everyone draw a picture of a dog to illustrate copyright. my little claim to fame =)
- "Embracing Open Source on CodePlex"
Now, it’s time to share to a larger audience. On May 15, coincidentally the 1-year anniversary of the power toys initial release, I will give an Engineering Excellence Talk (read: Microsoft’s internal “come share best practices” talk circuit) called "Lessons Learned Going Open Source with the Power Toys" (internal link). Have no fear, I will share these lessons learned here on my blog.
Hope to see the microsofties who read my blog there. This will be the first time i’ve given a talk with a broken leg.
