Toto, I've a feeling we're not in San Diego anymore
So you may have noticed I haven't been writing in my blog for a couple of weeks. The reason is that I moved from San Diego, CA to Kirkland, WA.
Being a native of Vancouver, B. C. I knew what to expect in terms of weather although the winter out here has been a little strange so far (all week and a half that I've been here), colder and drier than expected.
Why did I move to Kirkland, WA? Well, because Kirkland is close to Redmond and for a number of personal reasons I made the plunge and am now working for Microsoft in the .Net Framework, Client and Web Platform and Tools Team. More specifically, I'm working on the Cider project.
What's Cider? It's a project code name for the visual designer for Windows Presentation Foundation (avalon). The key difference between Cider and Sparkle (also a WPF/Avalon visual designer) is that Cider is geared towards developers and will run inside Visual Studio whereas Sparkle is geared towards graphics/UI designers.
I'm very excited about this opportunity, it's a strong team of awesome people.
As such, I am moving this blog to http://blogs.msdn.com/jnak, please update your RSS aggregators and bookmarks.
