Service Engineer, Microsoft Visual Studio Online - Team Foundation Server
You might remember me from such blogs as OzGrant.com, mailing lists such as OzTFS.com, the Team System MVP's list and the world's first hosted Team Foundation Server - TFSNow.com.
Just over two months ago I interviewed for a position on the VSTS team in Redmond, Seattle. I hastily accepted the offer and after jumping through some visa hoops, I've relocated from Canberra, Australia.

Congratulations on getting your blue badge, and your own msdn.com blog as well - you certainly seem to be finding your way round quick enough!
I'll be interested to hear some of the challenges when driving internal TFS adoption, hope you will be able to share some of that. But also plenty of dogfooding tales and tips from running so many large TFS instances in a large company with mature processes.
Have fun in your new job. Looking forward to meeting up next time I am around the area.
Great stuff Grant, looking forward to hearing about your adventures 'on the inside'.
I trust that you and Em are settling in OK over there.
*sniff*; All my friends have moved to Redmond!!! =) Congrats buddy, and welcome back to the blogosphere as a blue badge!!
A lot of success in their new projects!
Live Team System !
Congratulations on your first post as a new Microsoft employee!
