I’m supposed to be on vacation, but it doesn’t look like this news has hit the blogosphere. Ward Cunningham, inventor of the Wiki and general pattern wonk, has joined Microsoft. He’s got a wiki page up for tips. I got to meet him on Tuesday and promised not to blog his arrival until he posted it on his site. Welcome Ward! I’ll be doing some very cool things with him, but more on that later. In the meantime, check out Testing Software Patterns on the MSDN Architecture Center.
