Today it is my last official day in Microsoft! After 10 years living abroad I decided to go back to Rome.

I really loved my time at Microsoft where I worked for the last 4 years. It is indeed a great company to work for and I think it is moving in absolutely the right direction in terms of both products and approach to market.

There are way too many moments worth remembering in my career here so I will not bore you with those... many of them are documented in this blog already anyway!

If you are interested in updates from the Microsoft UK Academic team, check out Ed’s blog.

If you want to keep in touch with me, I will still be on Twitter (@pbarone) and I am setting up a new blog on (bear with me on that one please, will take me a few days!!!).

It has been a great pleasure and honour to be in touch with you all and to have a blog on MSDN and I wish all of my readers all the very best for your future!
