  • Blog Post: Apprentice, episode 4

    I just finished watching this week's show. It looks like this year is shapping up to be a reverse of last year, where now several women get peeled off the team early on. I am pretty sure they'll be back in the boardroom next week too, because it doesn't look like they have any real energy on their team...

    I just finished watching this week's show. It looks like this year is shapping up to be a reverse of last year, where now several women get peeled off the team early on. I am pretty sure they'll be back in the boardroom next week too, because it doesn't look like they have any real energy on their team...
  • Blog Post: And I thought my job was cool...

    In the latest issue of Fortune magazine, there is a pretty mind blowing article on a guy named John “Winter” Smith who is attempting to visit each and ever Starbucks location. I find myself joking frequently with friends that there must be a building code in Seattle decreeing you should not...
  • Blog Post: Made it to TechEd

    I made it into TechEd this afternoon without any hitches. The weather was just starting to look up as we pulled out of Seattle, but no doubt pales in comparison to the sun and palm trees down here. I always love seeing Mt. Rainer from up in the air, and this morning was no exception. Definitely a different...
  • Blog Post: Installing the .NET Framework

    I wanted to make sure and blog this before I lost the link. I frequently get asked how to detect whether the .NET Framework is installed and chain it into a setup as a prequisite. The Setup.exe Bootstrapper Sample includes sample codes that shows exactly how to do this.
  • Blog Post: Creating Products People Love

    I have been meaning to write a blog on Creating Product People Love for a few weeks now, and am finally getting around to it. I remember seeing a talk on this very topic several years back, and unfortunately my notes from it got trashed when I accidentally reformatted my laptop (ouch!). The speaker had...
  • Blog Post: Columbia River Gorge photography

    I just posted pictures from my recent expedition to the Columbia River Gorge up at Kevin Morrill's Photos . Really cool shots of Pony Tail and Wahkeena Falls. If you live in the Seattle/Portland area and haven't ever driven through the Columbia River Gorge--you are missing out! You can take highway 84...
  • Blog Post: Cool deployment/setup blog

    Michael Dunn from the Windows Deployment team wrote a good post on building a solid setup. For those that didn't catch it, it can be found at: http://blogs.msdn.com/mdunn/archive/2004/04/09/110702.aspx -Kevin
  • Blog Post: Deployment and dependencies

    One of the things I work with on my team is how customers deploy their applications when they depend on a redistributable such as the .NET Framework or J#. I am just starting to get my arms around this space, and have more questions than answers right now. Having worked on the Visual Studio setup quite...
  • Blog Post: Good news in a newspaper!?!

    I sat down for breakfast this morning after plunking down $1.50 for a copy of the Seattle Times. I usually find myself more distressed than encouraged after reading the paper. So I was pleasantly surprised when I flipped to the local news section today to read a column titled Woman works to find work...
  • Blog Post: Progress bars, does anyone trust them?

    Our team just finished doing usability research on Visual Studio's setup. These studies are always fascinating to me, because even the most seemingly simple interface can completely crash and burn when presented to someone who is not biased by the effort that went into designing it. One of the things...
  • Blog Post: My first blog...

    Okay, this is my first ever attempt at writing a blog. I am pitifully behind the times, but I figured better late then never. First, a quick introduction... I work as a Program Manager at Microsoft. I started working at MS as an intern when I was in high school. Back then I was a Software Design Engineer...
