About Ronan Geraghty's Weblog

Ronan is a member of the Developer and Platform Group in Microsoft Ireland, and has been working with Microsoft technologies since the initial release of Windows for Workgroups back in the early 90's. Since then he has worked for a number of ISVs in areas as diverse as COM/CORBA interoperability, Mobile Web Portals and most recently enhanced television (including a BAFTA-nominated deployment) and interactive advertising. Within the Developer and Platform Group, Ronan works with ISVs and Enterprises in Ireland/Northern Ireland with a particular focus on the Application Platform which spans clients, servers and devices, and particularly enjoys learning about the innovative ways technology is being employed by customers and partners.


If you work for an ISV or enterprise in Ireland/Northern Ireland and are interested in how Microsoft can help you then please feel free to contact me.

I'm particularly interested in hearing from people who are interested in adopting Visual Studio 2008, SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008.
