Many of you will know Eric Nelson, but for those who don't here's some brief words from the man himself. After many years of developing on UNIX/RDBMS (and being able to get mortgages) Eric Nelson joined Microsoft in 1996 as a Technical Evangelist (and stopped being able to get mortgages due to his new ‘unusual job title’ in the words of his bank manager). Currently Eric’s interests include digging into the Windows Azure Platform and helping UK ISVs benefit from the use of Microsoft technologies.
