How does Microsoft develop software? This is a first attempt at pulling the public resources together.

I've been assimilated full-time by the good folks at CDI Education as a "Senior Consultant" (the best name we could come up with for my role as architect, mentor, developer, speaker and sometime trainer). CDI is the leading corporate trainer in Canada and they've been my primary client since March. I'm really proud of the .NET development we've already done and am really looking forward to the projects we have planned over the next year. From the President on down they've put a great team together and I'm glad to be a part of it.
