  • Blog Post: C# Chats: What Topics Would You Like to See?

    I have another role in addition to C# Program Manager; I am also the C# Team chat coordinator - I am responsible for finding topics, finding attendees on our team, and choosing the dates. In the past we've attempted to come up with chat topics we think the community wants. I'll leave it up to the...
  • Blog Post: Summer Lightning

    I have to agree with Cyrus . Last night's lightning show was awe-inspiring. It all started as a beautiful end to a perfect-weather day - a towering orange cloud, just to the east of Redmond as the sun set. A few friends and I were walking around in Marymoor park enjoying the weather and the brightly...
  • Blog Post: C# Team Chat: What we did at TechEd (Thurs 6/24, 1pm PST)

    A few C# Program Managers (including myself) presented at TechEd 2004 in San Diego. We thought we'd have a chat where we could answer your questions if you didn't get them answered at TechEd, or perhaps try to allow people who weren't in San Diego to experience the magic. :0) Eric Gunnerson will be...
  • Blog Post: Summit Summary

    Thanks to all the MVPs who made it to Redmond last week. It was great interacting with you. There were so many activities I couldn't blog about all of them in a timely fashion. So I'll do it now. Monday Night's dinner was a fun informal Microsoft/MVP mixer time. A good number of C# Team showed...
  • Blog Post: The Summit

    The MVP Global Summit is happening. And, unfortunately, so are my normal job responsibilities. :0) I'm the MVP lead for the C# product group, which means I'm charge of our interactions with them, and I was also responsible for planning Wednesday's activities. Today was Habib's talk about debugging...
  • Blog Post: C# and unit-testing chat Thursday 3/18

    There is an MSDN chat next Thursday from 1-2pm Pacific time about C# and unit-testing. It should be a really good chat; unit-testing enthusiasts and experts will be there, including James Newkirk , Eric Gunnerson and others from the C# team. Need to do some unit-testing studying up before the chat...
  • Blog Post: the tooth

    The Tooth . This is the fourth time this particular tooth has been damaged. Next time I think I need something a bit more serious than the standard bonding. How did it happen, you ask? Probably the most boring way possible: I was eating lunch with Anson and Shaykat yesterday and apparently attempted...
  • Blog Post: slashdot on debugging

    David J. Agans' Debugging was just reviewed over on Slashdot . The book has nine debugging “rules“: Understand the system Make it fail Quit thinking and look Divide and conquer Change one thing at a time Keep an audit trail Check the plug Get a fresh view If...
  • Blog Post: Appweek, VS and VSS

    Last week the C# QA and PM teams participated in what we call an Appweek. We split into groups of 4-6, one PM per team, and worked together on a small-scale app of our choice. Of course, small-scale is very relative term. :0) Our team chose to do a network-based Worms/Scorched Earth game - for those...
  • Blog Post: entry point

    [update: there have been some changes since this first post. Check this recent role change announcement ] Hey. They call me Scott Nonnenberg, and I'm a Program Manager (PM) on the C# Team. But I'm actually part of a subset of that team, the Visual Studio Debugger team. So I work on things related...
