So...

The big announcement that I hinted at last week is that, as of today, I have assumed the role of. NET developer evangelist with Microsoft, working in the East region. I want to say thanks to all the folks who've helped me develop the skills to get here, particularly my friends at INETA and ASPInsiders. I'm looking forward to helping folks in my new role. Though it may take me some time to get up to speed, feel free to ping me via the Contact link if I can be of assistance.

UPDATE: I'm ashamed to admit that I forgot to thank a very important group of people...the MVPs. Between my leads, my fellow ASP.NET MVPs, and others I've met through the program, I learned a good deal, and had a lot of fun. Thanks to Ben, John, and the rest for honoring me with the award, and for being great colleagues and friends.

Congratulations! You know, I took a serious look at that exact position offering and wondered whether to make the "plunge" and interview. It's good to see someone of your caliber accept the opportunity. All the best.

Congrats to you man! You know we are all jealous of you. I wish you the best in all that you do there at Microsoft. Since you are in the east, you might be down this way. Let me know when. I'll buy you a beer.

Woah, congrats man. So no more whupping my ass at Halo at the insiders meet then. Someone else I know has just taken an evang job in Redmond, and I reckon it's the best job going - you get to play with new stuff _and_ tell people about it.

Congratulations, Andrew! I am sure you will do a fabulous job. Certainly, evangelist sounds like an appropriate title for you<g>. You have never been afraid to offer an opinion!

I am very happy for you!

Congratulations Dude!! I'm sure you will be happy with your decision, especially after seeing what Microsoft has in store for the world :)

I'm also with the East coast region (out of the NYC office), with any luck we will get the chance to work together in the future.

So, good luck and prepare yourself for the firehose :)

'East Region' ?? Any chance being near Hartford, CT?

Hi SB,

I don't know how likely it is that I'd get up as far as CT. I'm working out of the Mid-Atlantic district office, and I'm pretty sure we've got evangelists who are specifically focused on the greater NY area. But I'll probably be blogging any scheduled travel events, so if I'm up your way, it should be on my blog.

Did you see that CNN article about the riots in Oakland?  It's really tragic what happened but the riots don't solve anything.
