Just over a month ago, I moved from p&p to the Cloud Services Team (CST), which is part of the Business Platform Division (BPD) of the Server and Tools Business (STB), reporting to John Shewchuk. CST is responsible for SQL AzureWindows Azure platform AppFabric, Microsoft Codename "Dallas", and many other cloud platform technologies. It's a talented and innovative team in one of the most significant and fast moving areas of the industry. As a Principal Architect here, I'll be helping to advance Microsoft's vision for an industry-defining cloud platform by creating and driving product, technical, and marketing strategy; developing new product offerings; and collaborating with other CST leaders on execution and product delivery.
