I met my boss on the blogosphere

Attention please – an announcement.

I’m going to do something I don’t think I’ve ever done on this blog. I’m going to talk about my work life.

Today I accepted a role at Microsoft.

My official job title will be Developer Evangelist and I will be reporting to this guy.

Many who know me, know that I pretty much talk tech to anyone who’ll listen and that I’m very passionate about it. My professional career has been focused around Microsoft technologies for the past 12 years so, needless to say, I feel like this is the perfect role for me.

Someone actually paying me to yap on about things I’m passionate about. It sounds ludicrous I know.

I’ve already met some of the team and it looks like I’ll be working with a bunch of talented and passionate people so it appears that I’ll definitely fit in.

Amongst other things, my job will be focused around Microsoft’s (or is that “our”) push to gain greater awareness of Expression Suite and related web technologies.
