I'm Diego Dagum. Welcome to my blog at MSDN.
I'm a professional developer since 1991, having started my first job in C-language.
By 2003 I approached the .NET platform and a year after I started working at Microsoft. By then, while still coding daily, I played the role of Software Architect so my first assignment in MS was as Architect Evangelist.
I ended up as editor of a publication called "The Architecture Journal"
A developer (or architect, okay) playing an editorial role sounds a bit odd, doesn't it? Well, I haven't said anything about my next assignments: monthly MSDN Magazine editorial director and biweekly MSDN Flash newsletter editor as well.
How does all these relate with my intention of this blog on native coding? The fact that one of the deficits I found in the content gathering process was the lack of people willing to produce stuff on native code. Most of people I talked, invited, told me that they considered that native code and C/C++ in particular were coming to an end (?). They went further: they told me that they understood that such idea was also true for MS, and that MS was archiving C++ as a language.
That called me to immediate action. That provoked me an encouragement to help better understand that
Thanks for coming! Diego Dagum.-
