For the record, this blog will be about whatever is on my mind when I decide to write a blog entry. Judging by the things that I've been thinking about when the idea "I should write a blog about this" pops into my head, I suspect the blog will cover many different aspects of development. I will probably make posts on topics specific to my team's product (Platform Builder), make fun of the quirks of Microsoft culture, make fun of myself, make wild and crazy generalizations that apply to development on any platform, and perhaps even stray into non-development topics. You never know what the future holds! (That said, I expect most of my blog posts to be focused on programming for Windows NT.)
I'm Doug Cook. I've been at Microsoft for about five and a half years now. (Six years if you count the internship, but I've learned that internships don't count for much, so it's five and a half.) I've been on the Platform Builder ("PB") IDE team since I started, so I'm kind of the old fogey of PB. I've successfully avoided management positions so far (with great power comes great responsibility).
