Where Have I Been?

Boy is that a good question, and I’m sure my fiance would like to know as well. Wow, its been over a month now at my new position within Microsoft, and I’m happy to announce that I’ve been apart of releasing my first build here! It’s been a stressful/exhausing past week and a half as we prepped our stuff for my team’s first build. I spent about 75 hours working 2 weeks ago, as well as about 70 hours this week. Yeah, I’m glad I have a weekend now…as I worked for about 15 days straight.

So, what am I working on? Well, its the next version of the Microsoft Partner Program website, and no, I can’t give specifics – but our partners will be VERY happy when this puppy releases later this year. It was a treat to be brought on right before development started, because it gave me some time to get used to the culture, as well as how their SDLC process actually works (BTW – I’m actually going to training on this process on Monday, as its basically so new, that we’re the only division/project that has used it so far).

I’m really enjoying my job out here, as it is constantly challenging me, and making me realize that I can be up to my full potential. It is such a treat to work with some of the best in the industry, and know that my, now, peers can look to me for advice and ideas. To better help you understand, I was primarily brought on for my custom control development expertise, and have recently been working on several controls as well as the application in entirety. It is truly amazing how many people come to get advice about how things should be done correctly, and I’m glad I can be there to answer their questions.

So off I go to enjoy my weekend, as our next “heavy” build is due in several weeks. It’s best that I enjoy this time & spend as much time as possible with the fiance prior to that, because it sure is a hard life. So, until next time…

I'm very happy for you Matt.

You deserve a great career at Microsoft.

I use your controls daily.

I believe that any DataLayer must be a simple code block, that they allow operations against DB.

That code block would not have to know on the Business Entities. Single to specialize it is to execute the operations (Store Procedures and SQL Sentences) against the engine DB (SQL, Oracle, DB2, etc.), with which this setting.

Finally, I invite to you to download the DataLayer.Primitives Public Version.

This is very cool Data Layer Smile

DataLayer.Primitives - Readme!
