About My WebLog

I currently work on Microsoft Windows.  I have previously worked on the Reporting Services team where I owned several of the rendering extensions.  I've been with Microsoft almost 15 years.  Paradoxically, the time has absolutely flown by yet it feels like forever ago when I attended first day NEO (New Employee Orientation) training.

This blog is an outlet where I can voice my ideas, solicit feedback, link to useful information, and ask for help.  This is a technical blog only but is not limited to talk about Security or Reporting Services or even Microsoft technologies.  My personal blog is located at

If you wish to contact me about a topic not discussed in a blog entry, you can use the Email button at the top of the blog or use your favorite client to send a message to: donovan dot smith at microsoft dot com.

Thank you.
