Obligatory first post

Time to add yet another MS blog to the fray.  I recently migrated from the world of HP to MS about a week and a half ago.  I was at HP for almost 6 years working as a Software Design Engineer.  In that time, I managed to publish a few articles in various Fawcette magazines as well as 2 books: SAMS Teach Yourself Visual C++ .NET in 24 Hours and Microsoft Visual C# .NET 2003 Developer's Cookbook.  So, I am one of those that has programming skills as well as writing.

It comes as really no surprise to myself that I was hired on as a Programmer Writer, a position that requires good programming know-how in addition to writing prowess.  My main area of focus will be the RosettaNet accelerator for BizTalk Server.  With that being the case, I plan on blogging frequently on both RosettaNet and BizTalk.  However, don't be surprised if I write about something completely different since I like to get my hands dirty in several different technologies.
