Our VSX community PM, Ken Levy has decided to leave the castle walls at Microsoft and start his own consulting business.

I've only been on the team for half a year but during the few times I worked with Ken, I was amazed how charsimatic he was and his ability to just get up in front of a crowd of people and convince them how cool extending VS is.

Ken's Texas Hold'em skills need improving though so hopefully he'll be practicing that during his downtime :)

For those interested in following his adventures post Microsoft, Ken's new blog is at http://mashupx.com/blog.

With Ken leaving, we now have an open community program manager position available.  We also have QA positions open as well.  If you're interested in being a community PM or a software deisgn engineer in test on the Visual Studio Extensibility team, let me know! :)

Anyways, congrats Ken and best wishes on your new adventure.  Hopefully we'll see you at the VSX Conference this fall.
