It’s very rare that Passion, Talent, and Opportunity line up. When it does, you ring the effing bell. Starting next Monday, I am going to be moving over to the Windows Phone 7 team, working on the developer experience.
The common theme in all of my work to date in my return to Microsoft has been the developer. Developers, developers, developers. [call me Monkey Boy Jr??] So when I was presented with the opportunity to work on the developer experience for Windows Phone 7, I had to take it. This position feels like a once in a career kind of deal, and I couldn’t be more excited. You know it’s the right role when you are part excited, part scared, and the mix ratio keeps shifting.
As for the blog, this new role will mean more posts here about mobile. Also, if you are a mobile developer, I want to hear from you. You can follow me on twitter, and I am always watching the hash tags #WP7 and #WP7Dev.
