It is common to write a “Hello World” application when starting on a new platform. This is my first MSDN blog post so I would like to start by saying “Hello MSDN” and to thank you for taking the time to read my post. I hope you will find my posts useful and feel free to send me comments.
So here are a few things about me to start the conversation:
1. Spent most of my career as a program manager working on web services, most recently Windows Live ID. It was amazing to work on web services that impact people all over the world.
2. In delivering web services to the world I still had a yearning for driving businesses forward. So I decided to pursue a career change and go into product management.
3. I’m a technical product manager in Visual Studio focused on both Windows Phone 7 and Web development.
4. Outside of work I am a MBA student at the University of Washington focused on marketing and finance.
Over the past few months that I have been here I’ve been playing with the phone tools and I can’t wait for Mix so everyone else can see them. My blog posts will focus on technology, business, product management and other random musings as they arise. J There will be lots of fun tidbits about announcements, technology, etc.
Talk to you soon,
