About aWorkBlogByGus

My name is Gus Perez and I'm a Principal Development Manager at Microsoft on the Cloud Tools team. We're responsible for the Windows Azure Tools and the Live Framework Tools as well as some other stuff. Prior to this project, I've worked on J++, C++, the first three versions of C#, and DTG. This blog is mostly work related topics (hence the wildly creative and witty name) while my personal blog covers everything else. I can also be found on Twitter from time to time here.
