Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.
Semisonic / Seneca the Younger
This new year brings a few more changes for me than in the past as today marks my last day as a Technical Evangelist at Microsoft and indeed my last day at Microsoft.
It’s hard to believe that nearly six years, thousands of miles, and gazillions of Meetups, BarCamps, and community events have passed since I joined the audience team of Microsoft’s Developer and Platform Evangelism (DPE) organization. I was drawn to Microsoft by my love of application development, but it was the involvement with community and the hundreds of folks I’ve met and interacted with throughout the years from which I drew my energy, and I thank you all for that.
As I move to the next stage of my career, I’m excited that I’ll be working hands-on with the very same technologies I’ve been espousing, and am looking forward to being part of the community from “the other side.”
