As most of you already know, my colleague Jason Mauer was affected with the recent layoff’s at Microsoft. Jason helped me manage the PacWest district which includes, AK, WA, ID and OR states. With Jason gone, I’ll be your Developer Evangelist for the Pac West region.
Please feel free to contact me via my email address, twitter (@mithund) or via my blog. Most of you already have my details and Portland or Idaho are no new communities to me. We’ve been working together for the past few years and I know most of you in the community already. But in case I’ve missed any of you, let’s reconnect!
I am happy to be a part and help you with any community events like BarCamps, Code Camps, Cloud Camps, etc that you might be working to put together!
Also, I am the Editor for the Pac West MSDN Flash Newsletter. If you’d like to promote your events, User Groups, etc to the broader community via the newsletter, let me know.
Looking forward to working with you all…
Your neighborhood evangelist
