• Hacked together a prototype for my Orcas feature over a weekend. Not bad for a PM,eh? :-). Sorry, I can't tell you what it is...yet.
     
  • Spent a week at MEDC India at Bangalore and had an absolute blast. I did a data demo as part of the keynote which went well - though some of my jokes fell flat. Here's a photo of me and the rest of the Visual Studio for Devices gang at MEDC. Quite an attractive bunch, aren't we?

  • I'm travelling to Redmond and Las Vegas the end of the month. So if you're anywhere near the Seattle area, drop me a mail and we can meet up. I'm going to Las Vegas to do a talk at  MEDC 2006. I'm doing APP320 - Web 2.0 and Mobile Devices. But more on that in later posts.
     
  • Hyderabad is getting really, really hot. Literally. When I stepped out of the flight from Bangalore, my body took a while to get used to heat. Who expects the temperature to be 38 degrees Celsius at 9 in the night?
     
  • I'm finally getting to contribute to some virtual machine development in Microsoft. Not in any official capacity, but it's really cool all the same.
     
  • Sql Everywhere is wicked. As in, really wicked.
     
  • Software engineering. At Microsoft, you really do understand what the word 'engineering' stands for. Example problem I'm faced with - you have a platform underneath you and you have to build something on top of that platform. How do you build both at the same time? And do so in a month?
     
  • My body clock is seriously out of whack. Too many late nights on the computer in the last year or so have resulted in my being unable to sleep till 4 AM in the morning. I've tried everything under the sun to get myself to sleep on time. But it really doesn't help counting sheep when you start thinking of how a search engine can use blog links and track conversations on the 5th sheep.
     
  • I need to come up with an excuse to meet this guy while I'm in Redmond. Though he doesn't know me :-)
