Who is Darren Jefford you might ask, well that's a good question :-)

I work as an Application Development Consultant within the Premier
Support for Developers
team at Microsoft UK, We work closely with our customers
and partners to ensure they're making the best use of our technology and get involved
in Architecture Reviews, Proof-of-concepts, Troubleshooting and generally helping
developers out.

As you'd imagine I'm a software developer at heart, my core background is C++ and
backend systems development, I tend to focus on .NET almost entirely now as most of
my customers are in this space and what fun it is!

A lot of my work ends up being investigating hard problems or working out how stuff
really works under the covers so expect to see lots of postings along these lines,
along with other handy things I come across along the way which will be mostly developer

Oh and a small note, as with all such blogs any thoughts or opinons are my own and
not Microsoft's, more here
