Look mom

Look mom, I have a blog!

A little background on myself to kick this off:  I am the Product Unit Manager (PUM) of the CLR.  I've been with the project since it started with some prototyping around the C++ compiler and some OOP'd extensions (remember the '98 PDC?).  I was the Development Manager for V1.0 and V1.1, working for Brian Harry.  Before that I worked on Visual Source Safe, the Repository, and the original ODBC team.  And before that, at IBM on the AS/400 doing DRDA and SQL/400 work.  Enough of that.

This site is a great source of information, and I hope you've found the contributions from the CLR team particularly helpful.  Some of the documentation here (from folks like Chris, Adam, Brad, Greg, and Suzanne) is embarrassingly better than our own internal documentation on our engine!  Thankfully we did the SSCLI work which also has very good documentation of our internals (it's not 100% the same code as the retail version, but is derived from it).

Please do send us feedback on additional topics you'd like to see here.  If you're not sure who on the CLR, ping me and I'll give you hand.
