For some time now I have been working on idea on how Microsoft can be more open with our customers in the community. One of the ideas that I have recently worked on was to show who is behind some of the work on Visual Studio. My hope is that there may be some benefit to those in the community if they could find a Microsoft employee who works on technologies that they are interested in. For instance, I thought it might be cool to list out the area of a product that a particular Microsoft employee works on and then have links to their blog or web site if they have one. This morning, the project to do this became a real and can be found on the Visual Studio Developer Center:http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/team/bios/
I would be interested to hear any feedback or ideas on if you find biographies to be valuable or not? Also, if you would like to see this done more broadly across Microsoft teams?
