When I joined the Windows Phone effort I initially had some reservations, but they mostly were about leaving my old team whom I loved dearly.
But the combination of aligning my experience and passion with the insanity of actually pulling something so big off in such a short amount of time made it a no brainer.
Thus when I ran into Brandon Watson last November at MS event after not seeing him since we had worked on IIS together in the stone ages my immediate thought was “We have to get this guy to join the team”.
Brandon gets developers. Best of all he gets today’s developers. So I’m really glad he’s decided to join the Windows Phone developer evangelism effort.
You’ll be glad too. Give him a shout out congratulating him @brandonwatson on twitter and subscribe to his blog feed at http://www.manyniches.com.
