Hello, everyone.  I'd like to introduce myself to you as a new blogger on the Canadian Developer blog.  My name is Paul Laberge and my fancy dancy title within Microsoft is "Partner Developer Advisor".  In essence, my role at Microsoft is to work with web developers and application developers to understand the Microsoft platform and how it can help you succeed in growing your career and building great software.

I've talked with the editorial team (Jean-Luc, John and Christian) about this blog and I'm very excited about its impact on the development community.  Having been a follower of the blog for a while (even before I joined Microsoft in January of this year), I know that there is great insight, discussion and content around how you as a developer see the world of technology and how we at Microsoft are committed to your personal and professional success.

Have a great weekend and I'll be in touch with you with posts in the very near future!

Paul
