About Robert Burke's Weblog

These days, I'm a member of the Developer and Platform Group at Microsoft Ireland.

Subscribe to my blog for the latest MSDN developer news in Ireland, and, at your discretion, you can be occasionally subjected to my tastes in artificial intelligence, photography, and the occasional moose.

It should go without saying that the views expressed here are my own, not Microsoft's. I always value feedback in the post comments, or to my Inbox via the Contact link.

I look a little like this.  But less like a disembodied head, usually.
