It’s been a looooong time, but I finally got around to geting DevHawk back online. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a year since my last post. Lots has happened in that time!
First off, I’ve changed jobs (again). Last year, I made the switch from program manager to dev. Unfortunately, the project I was working on was cancelled. After several months in limbo, I was reorganized into the .NET Core framework team back over in DevDiv. I’ve got lots of friends in DevDiv and love the open source work they are doing. But I really missed being in Windows. Earlier this year, I joined the team that builds the platform plumbing for SmartGlass. Not much to talk about publicly right now, but that will change sometime soon.
In addition to my day job in SmartGlass, I’m also pitching in to help the Microsoft Services Disaster Response team. I knew Microsoft has a long history of corporate giving. However, I was unaware of the work we do helping communities affected by natural disasters until recently. My good friend Lewis Curtis took over as Director of Microsoft Services Disaster Response last year. I’m currently helping out on some of the missions for Nepal in response to the devestating earthquake that hit there earlier this year.
