As many of us are gearing up for the new school year or rebooting various user groups following a summer hiatus, this seems like a good time to introduce the (mostly) new Technical Evangelist Team for the Northeast District. Although our mission remains the same – enable developer and student audiences to become successful mobile application developers – our numbers and “home bases” have increased, which will enable us as a team to reach more of you on a consistent basis.
Lest rumors start flying about my former colleagues, Chris Bowen and Edwin Guarin, congratulations versus goodbyes are in order. Both Chris and Edwin have moved on to new roles and new challenges at Microsoft, and I expect they won’t be strangers to the developers and students they’ve fostered over the years. After all, you can take the evangelist out of the community, but you can’t take the community out of the evangelist!
