About Code-o-rama Too

My name is John Lyon-Smith and I am a software developer on the Visual Studio Diagnostics Team at Microsoft, part of VS for Team Developers SKU, or TeamDev for short.

My team is responsible for the Visual Studio debugger, the performance profiler and the coverage instrumentation tools.

This blog is about using diagnostic tools to tune and debug Windows software.

Why is my blog called Director of Random Technologies?  Well, it's because I like "shiney things". 

I have two other blogs.  code-o-rama a programming blog where I post articles on Windows and .NET programming.  Keep Taking the Happy Pills is a blog that is oriented at family & friends.
