  • Blog Post: Belated Welcome - Eyal Lantzman

    Very poor show of me - I forgot to welcome Eyal Lantzman to the team. Eyal recently joined the team in Cambridge, (I originally wrote "us" instead of "the team" there - note to self - must remember that I live in America now!). As part of this, he's made the big life change of moving over from Israel...

  • Blog Post: Where have all the testers gone?

    (With apologies to Paula Cole ) We've had jobs posted for testers for DSL Tools and the other cool Visual Studio eXtensibility things we're doing here in Redmond on the Visual Studio Ecosystem team for a while now and to my amazement, they're still open. We're looking for a lead and a couple of individual...

    Somewhat belatedly, I wanted to welcome the latest addition to the Visual Studio eXtensibility team .

Welcome on...

  • Blog Post: Too much of life wasted on this soundtrack...

    This video is very amusing for Microsofties and maybe helps lift the veil to outsiders on why we're such a corporate powerhouse ;-) If I never have to hear that music again it will be too soon.
  • Blog Post: DSL Presentation at New Jersey Microsoft Developer's Group

    Sujit D'Mello of Microsoft Consulting Services will be presenting on DSL Tools at this user group next week.

  • Blog Post: 50 Years of an Institution - LEGO still rocks

    I hear from Michael that LEGO is celebrating its 50th anniversary. I'm quite certain that LEGO and my natural desire to build, destroy, rebuild, morph, combine and synthesize formed a virtuous circle in my childhood that had a significant impact in setting me off down the path my interests and career...
  • Blog Post: Quan is blogging

    Quan To , our top-notch, shiny new program manager on the team, is blogging. I'm sure it's going to be fabulous (no expectation setting there then Quan ;-) ) Welcome to the team.
  • Blog Post: As it's nearly Christmas...

    ... and therefore shortly the delectable Kylie (squeee!) will be helping the Doctor save the world from gold-faced angel-type baddies, I thought I'd take a break from our normal programming and share this seasonal treat with you all. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas and all that.
  • Blog Post: Les WebCasts de toutes les sessions VSX Day sont disponibles!

    OK, so I don't get to blog in French much (d'habitude pas du tout - in fact) and of course I stole this phrase from Jean-Marc's blog anyway so it's just a cheat :-) However, I couldn't let it pass that the good folks from the dslfactory.org community and Microsoft France had an incredibly successful...
  • Blog Post: La la la la - Not much blogging in A-mer-ica

    My word that's a corny title :-) And I don't even like West Side Story. Stuart is the new musical theatre aficionado on our team - you'll have to ask him for details though ;-) So it's time for one of those "excuse" blogs. There's been a huge amount going on in our VSX world lately and I've been largely...
  • Blog Post: Hiring for DSL Tools and Visual Studio eXtensibility in both Cambridge and Redmond

    We're expanding further. I posted a little while ago about jobs in Redmond on our new, combined DSL Tools and VSX team. Well, we're now hiring for another developer in Cambridge, UK as well. So whichever side of the pond your life needs to be, we can accommodate. If you're passionate about extending...
  • Blog Post: We've shipped - what a week - and what a month

    Well, you could hardly have missed that Visual Studio 2008 shipped this week .

  • Blog Post: Visual Studio Ecosystem/DSL Tools team hiring (again)

    This time we're looking for folks who want a job in Redmond, WA, USA. We're looking for a pretty senior .Net developer to come and help us build tools, libraries, code generators and samples necessary to broaden the DSL Tools out to address the more general problem of extending Visual Studio in a model...
  • Blog Post: DSL Tools has moved and I've pimped

    I've been pretty off the pace on blogging, but there's a reason. Well OK, an excuse ;-) As James points out , the DSL Tools team has just made a move into the core of Visual Studio in the Visual Studio eXtensibility Ecosystem team (or VSX as we like to call it). As with all moves there's been a lot to...
  • Blog Post: Tech Ed Day Four: Test-driven Modeling - you heard it here first - sigh - no you didn't

    As Harry reports , I had a fun discussion with Peter Provost and him on the subject of combining TDD and Modeling. I was feeling pretty smug, thinking I'd just coined the term, and planning how to spend my enormous book advance from such a cool new buzzword, but had the smile wiped off when I did a bit...
  • Blog Post: Tech-Ed Day Three: Candid Camera

    Ken Levy , the VSX community PM managed to catch me with his rinky-dinky video camera and we had a chat about DSL Tools in the Visual Studio SDK. http://blogs.msdn.com/vsxteam/archive/2007/06/08/Gareth-Jones-talks-about-DSL-Tools-at-TechEd07.aspx Hmmm, so the game's up - now you know the photo on my...
  • Blog Post: Closet Cloggies

    Apparently, there's a very hush-hush organization forming over in the Netherlands. The Secret Dutch Software Factory Society - Jezz has the skinny . Cambridge is pretty flat too, so maybe we could be an honorary part of the club. I wonder what the password is? " Kopstootje" maybe?
  • Blog Post: Tech-Ed 2007, Orlando

    Just to let folks know that I'll be at Tech-Ed this year if you want to swing by and talk DSL Tools or Software Factories or VS Extensibility or Derby County's promotion hopes or similar vital subjects.
