We're getting very very close to wrapping up (about time, I bet you're thinking) with
everything we're doing for PDC. We can track all the issues on a single whiteboard
now (both Andy Oakley and Sean,
who you'll have the opportunity to meet in LA, sit within overhearing distance) --
our part of the hallway seems to have a little more traffic now than it did before.
Even though we've had some challenges, the atmosphere has remained (pretty much) calm
and determined. Everyone is working really hard, pitching in where they're needed.
People seem tired, but the light, well, it almost seems like we're not in a tunnel
any more ;-) In the last 24 hours, Duncan has
pitched in at the last minute to crank out a top rate dev center and get it into test.
This earned him, well, I can't say because he hasn't gotten it yet, but a funny prize.
Well, I think it's funny. I wonder if he'll let me take a picture. Tina
also kicked butt in driving TONS of loose ends to resolution today. And Denise
really cranked and got a couple of quick turnaround projects into test. Yesterday
it was Reshma, who tested tirelessly and faced all obstacles with an incredibly positive
attitude. And the day before Kent, and the day before... Oops, I shouldn't have
started this. There are so many really great people at MSDN. I'm really
glad that I work here. And there are a bunch of us (I think 19 people) are going
to PDC, so track us down and tell us what you think about MSDN. How do you think
we can do better? We're there to listen and learn.
Can't wait to meet you!
