  • Blog Post: Playing with Genetics

    Genetic Algorithms that is: I've been toying with the ideas related to adaptive "AI".  The basic idea is:  If you could play a game where the content is adaptive, the game would seem "fresh" longer and you would have more incentive to play the game for an extended period...
  • Blog Post: The subtle scent of change still wafting in the air.

    So It’s been nearly four years at Microsoft here for me.  I’ve had a great tenure working on VSTO, but as time moves and things change, so must we.  About a month ago a very interesting opportunity arose that I could not pass up, it has caused me to leave the VSTO team to a different team within...
  • Blog Post: A day at the movies.

    It's been quiet.  I've been super busy with a lot of things.  Some things I can talk about and mostly things I can't.  What I can talk about:  I went to PAX this last weekend.  PAX (also known as Penny Arcade Expo) is a big convention for us "gaming" enthusiasts. ...
  • Blog Post: Two years of lessons learned.

    It's been a while since I've posted here, I'm not quite ready to jump back into pushing deployment stuff again, I have had other things on my plate (vacation being one of them) and am finding less time to tackle the interesting questions that are coming through. That said, I do want to keep up the habit...
  • Blog Post: Correction!

    I got ahead of myself and thought it was one week later than it really is (sort of good because I was beginning to think I was a lot further behind than I was).  I will be out next week.   Unfortunately this week has been super crazy.  I'm going to skip a full post this week but I...
  • Blog Post: Late but live!

    I was planning to post something about 3 days ago but things have been a little crazy on the home front (lets just say that 'the games' have been playing me these days) and a lot crazy on the work front (can't talk about it exactly, but it's been good busy mostly).  I have no VSTO tips today, sorry...
  • Blog Post: A little more about Kris.

    A dose of intent: In general I don't want to cover a lot about myself directly in the blog entries. I am attempting to keep the tone of the blog entries a little more focused. I am not some heartless machine though and I will occasionally want to post some information about myself. I will keep that...
  • Blog Post: Returns and Specialization

    It seems like it’s the season of returns. I’ve returned from Idaho which is where I was returned the favor of spreading a cold to my wife (my entire family was fairly sick over the holidays and I managed to catch their particular flavor of cold/flu). What makes this particularly bad is that I was just...
  • Blog Post: My trusted secret inner circle.

    Before I jump right in, I want to give some major credit to the author of the MSDN articles that cover this same information. The information on this Blog is not meant to replace any of the information that is covered in the MSDN, but rather as a supplement and personal look based upon my own observations...
  • Blog Post: Prospectus, Manifesto, Meaning and Intent.

    Welcome to my blog. First, an initial introduction: My name is Kristopher Makey, though typically I go by the much shorter label of "Kris". At the time of writing this initial blog post I work for Microsoft on Visual Studio Tools for Office. Specifically, since May of 2006, I've been working on...
