My not-so new opportunity...
It is perhaps an understatement to say it's been a while since I blogged.
As is commonly the case with Microsoft blogs, the reason for going dark is that I left the WPF team almost two years ago for an opportunity I couldn't pass by to join a systems incubation startup.
We're a small team with big ambitions, and as you might expect, my role involves the exploration of a radically different approach to the UI/Graphics platform which guarantees security, responsiveness, and leverages modern GPUs and manycore. To deliver on this vision, we are revisiting every layer of the stack from device drivers, through rendering engines, up to application frameworks and programming/computation models.
While we’re not specifically seeking to fill headcount on our team, we are always on the lookout for luminaries with insight, experience, and who love to write code. If you are interested in joining a deep systems incubation that believes in small, hand-picked teams of truly outstanding developers, please do contact me.
While much is demanded of everyone in this group, we also get to participate in what I personally believe is the most exciting and revolutionary work to happen in the industry since PARC.
