This week, the Mid-Atlantic developer community welcomes Scott Wiltamuth, a Product Unit Manager for Visual Studio Languages. Scott, who grew up in our area, manages manages Microsoft’s .NET programming languages: VB, C#, F#, IronPython and IronRuby.  In his seventeen year tenure at Microsoft, Scott has worked in a variety of roles on a wide range of development tools, including Visual C#, Visual Basic, Visual Basic for Applications, VBScript, JScript, Visual J++, and OLE Automation.

In addition to being a geek’s geek, with great credentials, Scott has a great sense of humor about himself, as evidenced by the following photo:

Scott Wiltamuth as Clippy

Last night, Scott visited the Capital Area .NET User Group and provided an overview of what’s new in Visual Studio 2010 to an appreciative crowd. In addition to the usual raffle items, Scott tossed in a couple of special edition Visual Studio Languages t-shirts that his team had made up.

Scott did a great presentation, as evidenced by some of the comments received:

  • “Very effective, concise, and targeted to the audience.”
  • “Scott was great…very polished speaker.”
  • “Excellent!”

Here are some additional photos from the event:

CapArea.net’s Scott Lock and Hal Hayes look on…maybe Scott should be paying attention? 

If you missed out on Scott Wiltamuth’s visit to DC, don’t fret…there’s still another opportunity for Mid-Atlantic folks to visit with Scott and get in some quality Q&A time. Scott will be speaking tomorrow night at a special meeting of the Richmond .NET User Group. If you can make it, please register, as space is limited, and also so we know how much food to order.

A big THANK YOU to Scott for taking time out of his schedule to fly out from Redmond and spend time with folks in the local community!
