  • Blog Post: Code as data, it's pretty neat

    So I have to admit I've been late in jumping to the "code as data" magic! I did play around with LINQ and the lambda syntax back last year with the May CTP, and found it really simple and powerful - reminding me of the days I worked with ML. I did not, however, play with System.Expressions until recently...

    Last week the Channel 9 team came over to our building. They initially wanted to do an interview with Doug , our Group Program Manager.

  • Blog Post: Business Rules Forum - so far

    I'm spending this week in DC at the Business Rules Forum Conference. It's been interesting. First, before this I'd been to TechEd and PDC and those are obviously much bigger conferences - 10,000+ or 15,000+ people. This one, comparatively, is tiny - I think must be around 200 or so. The good thing...

    Couple of days back, I completed 5 years at Microsoft. Today, at a team meeting, I was showered with confetti and then back in my office there were some more. It's amazing how quickly time has flown by. I started out as an SDET in the ASP.Net group working on Web Controls, and 1.5 years later, moved...

  • Blog Post: March Sample Madness Month

    A mail came out in early March called the “March Sample Madness“, which asked for volunteers to help out with testing and writing new samples for Whidbey. Kind of exciting huh? It was nice to see the product teams open up and ask for help from the division. I dont work on whidbey, however...
