Welcome to my blog world! Let me share a few things about myself with you. I am Gaurav Seth, working as a Program Manager with the JScript  team in the Developer Tools Group at Microsoft since Aug 2007. Prior to this I was with the Java Migration team in the same group from Mar 2003 and mainly handled the feature areas of Java Language Conversion Assistant (JLCA) and 64-bit Visual J# apart from others. I am based out of Microsoft's India Development Centre, located in Hyderabad, India.

At Bell Labs Development Centre, I was a part of the Bell Labs president Award Winner - 1xEvDO team. My role involved design and implementation in call handling area of one of the world's first 3GPP-1xEvDO standard based communication solution.
