About The Author

Hi, I'm Eric Lippert. I worked at Microsoft for sixteen years, developing the Visual Basic, VBScript, JScript and C# compilers. I am now at Coverity, where I continue to write analyzers for the C# language.

This blog has been moved to ericlippert.com; please subscribe! You can also follow my posts on twitter, where I am @ericlippert.

Though this is primarily a technical blog about the design, implementation and use of programming languages, I've occasionally delved into other interests such as ancient Greek politics, music theory, and relationship advice.

When I'm not designing and implementing programming languages I can be found writing and editing technical books, sailing small craft, playing the piano, attending live theatre, and collecting books about the life and works of J.R.R. Tolkien. I live in Seattle with my wife Leah and our cat, Minerva.
