About Windows Installer, the .NET Framework, and Visual Studio.
Today is my one-year anniversary here at Microsoft and I have had the opportunity to work with a lot of great people and on great projects. I've seen two betas of the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005 and a myriad of Community Technology Previews (CTPs) go out the door, improved some of the patching technology for older releases as well as help prepare for the up-coming release of .NET 2.0 and VS 2005. I've also worked with lots of other teams outside of Developer Division during my work with Windows Script; and also to improve our patch build technology with other sustained engineering groups like Office and Windows as Microsoft integrates our divisions' products and, thus, adds inter-dependencies such as the Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office.
So as tradition goes, I have brought in one pound of M&Ms.
