Running with Code Like with scissors, only more dangerous


I’m going to be on Channel9

Posted by Rob Paveza

I went and hung out with Larry Larson and Andrew Richards from the Channel9 show Defrag Tools today to record an episode! It was way cool, even though I got a little lost heading to the building which was literally right across the street from my own. (In my defense, I was up really early and I thought the building was further down the street).

All said and done, I got a cool Channel9 dude and I got to take a picture in the studio!

I'm @ Channel9 on 10/14/2013

Be sure to check out Defrag Tools on 10/14 to see it, because I'll be talking about Just My Code in Visual Studio. If you haven't seen the blog I linked to last time, it's definitely worthwhile, but at the very least, you ought to watch the video, because it's AWESOME!

Update: It's live! Check it out!


Microspotting: A future product, or something more innocuous?

I was driving over at Building 86 today and saw this. It's either an ad for a product I haven't seen, a road sign, or an indication that I have a really obscure sense of humor.

Microsoft Median: A future product or a sign that I have a weird sense of humor?


Joining Microsoft

Posted by Rob Paveza

I'm excited to announce that on April 2nd, I will be joining Microsoft as a Program Manager. I'm unsure whether it's OK for me to be saying exactly which team I'll be on just yet, so we'll have to wait and see...

With that in mind, retroactively looking backwards on my blog, please note that any articles previously written were written as an outsider looking in. I probably will not be going back and revising any such articles, so you should not treat them as coming from someone who knows the voodoo secrets about things. You should also not treat them as any kind of opinion made by Microsoft.

I'm unsure what that means for the future of this blog. Maybe I'll be able to get one of those coveted MSDN blogs. :) We shall see....

I also have a somewhat unusual story about how I managed to join Microsoft. I may be talking to someone on the JobsBlog about it soon - I'll be sure to update things then.


What’s up with the fish?

I guess I see the inverted 8, but - what's up with the fish logo for Windows 8 Consumer Preview??

Oh, I see the 8 blended in the background too... :)
