Running with Code Like with scissors, only more dangerous


Are you a developer? Come work at Microsoft.

Posted by Rob Paveza

I've been posting about technical interviews, but with Build 2014 going on right now, I wanted to make a point about work.

If you're a developer, you should seriously think about coming and joining us at Microsoft.

Why? For the same reason that our developer-customers should build for Windows and Microsoft. Satya said it best (2:39:05):

You want to build for Windows because we are going to innovate with a challenger mindset.

I can't talk about what we're doing right now, but what I can say is that it's going to be amazing. The stuff that we're working on is going to be very compelling. If you've ever wanted huge challenges to come in and win a market, with a huge playing field (millions to billions) of customers, you should come join us. The problems we solve are big and fun.

So, come do it. If you're interested, leave me a comment and we'll connect offline. Feel free to leave an email; comments get moderated and it won't get crawled.

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!
