I’ve been at Microsoft for just over 3 years and I’ve decided it’s time to move on.
Move on to Redmond, that is!
On March 16th, I will begin my new chapter at Microsoft as a Software Development Engineer in the Worldwide DX group – where I will be helping partners build epic projects.
The decision to accept this position did not come easy, as I have come to care greatly for the developer community in Dallas and surrounding areas. I have made many great friends as an evangelist this past 14 months and I will never forget the great times I had interacting with the community. Let’s face it, being a developer evangelist at Microsoft is an incredible job and one that I do not concede lightly, but I know that whoever they find to replace me will do a fine job.
Sometime in the next few months, my family and I will relocate to Washington, but I have a feeling that we’ll return one day. DFW is and always will be my home – it’s where I grew up, my family is still here and there are opportunities that I hope will someday come to bear here, when the time is right.
Never fear, I will still be actively blogging and interacting with the community on social media. I also hope to be able to bring some of the work I will be doing Redmond back to DFW down the road where it makes sense.
I bid you all in Dallas/Fort Worth a farewell, but not goodbye.
