The new challenge
As Dennis blogged about two months ago, I've taken on a new challenge at Microsoft. I'm now responsible for leading a team of evangelists in Microsoft's Developer & Platform Evangelism group. Please no comments about MS middle management - I've heard them all at this point. :) So what is my team doing? We're responsible for evangelizing the technologies that will be used to build server-based applications (although the line betwen client and server is blurring). We're currently focusing on these areas:
- WCF (Craig McMurtry)
- Workflow (coming soon! :)
- DSI/Management (David Aiken)
- IIS7 (Brett Hill)
- Lotus Notes Migration (Gary Devendorf)
There are a couple evangelists (Marc Mercuri & Vittorio Bertocci) on my team that work on a program called Enterprise Go. Basically, Enterprise Go is designed to help key customers our new technologies that are in beta.
It's a fun team, with several opportunities and challenges ahead as Microsft prepares to relase WinFx and Longhon Server.
