  • Chris Adams' Blog

    Chris Adams just started a new blog!  IIS fans may know Chris from the Webcast series he does for us on TechNet.  These are a great way to learn about IIS - Chris works directly with the product team on customer and supportability issues and knows what questions to ask.  He usually brings someone from the product team along for the presentation or else works with the product team to make sure the content has the depth and accuracy he and his audience expect.
