I feel like I am .NET evangelist lately. I have brothers-in-law asking me about it, my intern is full of questions about it, even some of the non-techno people at MS are asking how hard it is to jump on board. I am not an evangelist strictly speaking. I am a dev. I work on a part of Exchange server called Outlook Web Access. I use .NET and C# for work, and I use it for projects at home too. I feel like I am an evangelist, because I love it and I talk about it. I guess I’ll blog about it too.
This blog is supposed to have a technical focus and I am sure many times it will. Today, I blog externally for the first time so I should give a little background about myself. As I said, I am a software design engineer at MS. I have worked here for 7 years. I started as a tester, then a web developer and now plain old dev. I have worked on and shipped the following products: Team Manager 97, Project 98, Project 2000 (and Project Central). Currently I am working on shipping Exchange Server 2003.
I used to contribute to an MSDN Voices column called Web Team Talking. Maybe you’ve read some of my stuff?
Why blog anyhow? I mean, what’s the point? There is no point. Weblogging is just fun. I guess if you read me then you’ll hear about Microsoft life. Maybe you will hear about what I do with .NET. Maybe you’ll hear about what I do on the weekends. Maybe, you will hear me responding to what some other guy wrote on his weblog in response to someone else. It’s that exciting.
