About Dan Truax (DanTr)

I joined Microsoft in 1996, and have been with Microsoft.com for the last 3 years. Currently, I am the General Manager of Server & Tools Online, the group that runs the global MSDN, TechNet, CodePlex, and Expression web sites. Prior to this, I have led Business and Product Strategy for Microsoft Learning, managed consumer and enterprise Joint Development Partnership (JDP) programs for the Windows Development Client and Server divisions, and directed Technical Readiness and Knowledge Management for the Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) division.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Before joining Microsoft, I spent 10 years in the corporate and government IT sector including time as a Systems Engineering Manager for Boeing Information Services at NASA Headquarters in Washington D.C.<o:p></o:p>

Somewhere along the way, I also spent 3 years in the US Navy as an Ops Specialist.<o:p></o:p>

Born and raised in Ohio, I am now the proud father of a 4 year old son and 7 year old daughter. And when I’m not working, I like playing online poker and riding my Harley.<o:p></o:p>
