All good things must come to an end, and my time on the BizTalk Server team has expired (self-inflicted of course). One of the best parts about being employed at Microsoft is the endless opportunities that can arise throughout your career. To that end, I have taken on a role managing the SDK writers for Windows Mobile. I’m in a new business space, meeting new people, and gaining a deeper understanding of the technologies I use on a day to day basis. Drinking from the fire hose has never been more exciting!

In the coming weeks, I’ll be skinning the blog and *mobilizing* it as I start to share out my knowledge and thoughts in this space. I’ll be up for anything while I get going here…discussing your feedback on the SDK, competitive debates (Symbian, Nokia, RIM, Palm, Apple, etc.), or general questions. There is a very high chance that many of you carry around a mobile device running Windows Mobile software or are passionate around this space, so stay tuned! Although I don’t plan on any more BizTalk related posts, don’t count that out.

The Windows Mobile Team blog, Mel Sampat’s blog, and John Kennedy’s blog seem like a good place to start sniffing around….but what do I know? I’m new here…

And what would this post be without a little reminiscing?? The following is a photo depicting the necessary candle and charm required to install BizTalk Server 2004. For more information, see K. Scott Allen’s Blog. Oh ya…and being called a documentation monkey was definitely a first.
