Scott Densmore has just officially announced that he’s leaving the patterns & practices team to pursue other opportunities within Microsoft. While I’m personally very sad to see him leave our team, I fully understand the need to try something new every now and then (hey, I moved halfway across the world for similar reasons!). Scott has been instrumental in making Enterprise Library the success that it’s been – he’s always been passionate about the quality of the code, doing the right thing by customers and for Microsoft, and in working with the community to share his ideas and help people with their problems. I know that Scott won’t disagree with me when I say that working with him isn’t always easy, but it has always been rewarding :-). Scott has passed the dev lead baton to Brian Button to get EntLib over the finish line and to help us out with new and exciting projects next year.
Scott – thanks for all you’ve done for our team and for the community, and we wish you the very best in your new role.
