Meet the Team - Danny Chen

  • Comments 1

Hi, I'm Danny Chen, (2nd from the right, grey shirt, next to Pete).  Like Pete, I'm also an SDET for Visual Web Developer.  I've been at Microsoft for about 1 1/2 years.  Prior to shipping Visual Studio 2005, I was on the QA team for ASP.NET.  I really enjoy working with the extensibility features of Visual Studio and ASP.NET whether it's creating custom controls, extending the built in providers, or working with the add-in model of Visual Studio.  You'll find quite a few examples of these on my blog linked below. 

I'm really looking forward to the next version of Visual Studio.  We're coming up with some really cool features that I can't wait to use myself.  Some of the new ideas that I've heard about that I'm hoping for are: a split view where you can see the rendering as well as the markup side-by-side.  A CSS properties window where you can see all the styles being applied to a particular control. (note: none these ideas are finalized yet so they may not make it to the final product).

I also have a blog at: where I try and post somewhat regularly.  You'll also find me on the ASP.NET forums where I'm a pretty active member.  I encourage you to check it out, it's really a great resource for web devs.  I don't know of many other products where the creators of the product are among the most active respondants to customer questions.
