Rangers – 11 months of fun, projects, Visual Studio 2010 BETA 1, BETA 2 …


I have just crossed the 11-month mark in Canada, with Microsoft and the Rangers. The start of the adventure was a rocky one. It felt like having to jump out of a Hercules at high speed (in the middle of a hurricane) and hit the ground running in a foreign, yet highly interesting and motivating environment 🙂 Microsoft is a truly innovative environment, filled with passionate, highly skilled and motivated individuals!


Looking back I can say that I am truly proud to work for the Rangers in the DevX Customer and Project Management Staff team, proud of the projects we have delivered and are busy working on, and proud and grateful for the Microsoft, MVP and other Rangers around the world!
