So, who is this Eric Gunnerson? And what will he cover here?

I'm a program manager in the Visual C# team, and I own the C# project system and our community efforts. But I must explain what "own" means in this context. "Program Manager" in many companies means "guy who's in charge of everything", but at Microsoft, Program Manager means something different. Basically, PMs are the glue that holds the company together.

I also write an MSDN C# column named "Working with C#" (no, I didn't name it) , and I'm the author of "A Programmer's Introduction to C#" from Apress.
