Leaving Microsoft …

After almost 5 years at the company, I am both sad and excited to say that I’ll be leaving the IIS team and Microsoft at the end of this week.

Looking back, I can say that my experience at Microsoft has been truly amazing. I got to ship two amazing products, ASP.NET 2.0, and IIS 7.0.  I got to do what I love to do – design and build platform technology, while working with great people on the most ambitious web technologies Microsoft has ever released. 

I wrote more about my experience at Microsoft on my iis.net blog.

Starting next week, I will be working on a few projects around web server performance, shared hosting and scalable web farms. I'll also be working directly with customers to implement IIS 7.0 solutions using the latest and greatest IIS 7.0 capabilities. 

Also, you can count on me continuing to blog about using and extending IIS 7.0.

In the meantime, if you have an interesting IIS 7.0 project in mind and need help, let me know.

    I have enjoyed your writings and your contributions to IIS. I wish you much success in whatever it is your take on for the future. Hopefully you will still be sharing and contributing your knowledge to the masses.

    Good luck.

    It’s been a pleasure to work with you on the reskit book 🙂 what sad is that haven’t got a chance to meet you in person, thought you were in campus during MVP summit 🙁

    Anyway – best of luck, keep all the good stuff about IIS7.0 coming, and tell us all the stories about your experience unleashing IIS 7.0…

    I've always read your blog with pleasure. I will hope that your decision doesn't mean to keep off your spare time from teaching us new techy tricks on IIS and Microsoft platform.
