Hello, well this is my first post on my new MSDN blog. As you can tell from the title of my blog, my name is Mark Groves, and I am a Program Manager within the Visual Studio Team Edition for Software Architects (that's a mouthful) product group. I am not really new to blogging; I have a personal blog over on MSN Spaces since the end of 2004. I was trying to post both work and personal items on that site from some time (or not much of anything recently), but thought it would be a better idea to split the content. This means I need to get much better at posting in both locations.

   

As you may be able to tell from some of my previous posts regarding Team Architect, I have mostly been working on Analysis & Design tools. In my previous life, pre-Microsoft, I was a Lead Architect / Director of Development at an ISV Golden, CO, using tools to design software, so it has been interesting being on the other side of the fence for the last 9 months since joining Microsoft.

   

Well I hope to soon be able to start posting some details on what we are thinking Orcas is going to look like for Team Architect, but if you have any questions or suggestions, please I would love to hear them.
