Today marks 18 years for me at Microsoft.  In a little twist of fate, I'll be presenting at our Gamefest conference which is kind of fitting because I got my start programming games for the PET 2001 in Microsoft BASIC (before it was Visual) and 6502 assembly language about 8 years before that.  It turns out writing games is very educational :)

Today I'll be talking about writing real-time programs in managed code.  Hope to see you today, if not, I'll be posting a detailed summary of the talk (more than just slides) when I'm back from vacation next week.
