It's covering various topics in the journey of getting ASP.Net + CoreCLR xplat shipped. I personally enjoy the product management side we see, ie. various thoughts going into naming convention, usability, perf studies, feature planning / or culling... always good to watch.

+Lee Keels I'm already doing that in W8, I sometimes wonder why when people like Microsoft or Google change to a new interface they take off some customization options that make pretty solid sense. I mean, you are taking the menu button back in as people wanted, why not give options to adjust to how it was? If you are happy with the default you leave it that way, if you are not happy, you change it.

Story
Tagline
Scott Hanselman is a former computer science professor, former Chief Architect in finance, now speaker, consultant, father, diabetic, and Microsoft employee working as an Architect in Web Developer Tools. I am a failed stand-up comic, and current book author.
Introduction

My name is Scott Hanselman. I work out of my home office for Microsoft as a Principal Program Manager for our Web Platform, aiming to spread good information about developing software, usually on the Microsoft stack. Before this I was the Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, now a part of Checkfree, for 6+ years. I was also involved in a few Microsoft Developer things for many years like the MVP and RD programs and I'll speak about computers (and other passions) whenever someone will listen.

Before Corillian and Microsoft I worked as a Principal Consultant at a local Microsoft Solution Provider called STEP Technology, speaking, writing, consulting, and very much not getting rich during Web 1.0. Even earlier, I worked at a Car Parts Data Warehouse called Chrome Data, and before that I had a small company that specialized in internationalization and thunking. I've also been an Adjunct Professor at OIT, teaching C#. On the side, I created the first PalmPilot Diabetes Management System in 1998 and sold it to a healthcare company five years later. It's now in limbo, but I'm trying to get it released as Open Source.

What else would you like to know?

I am an early adopter, it seems.  I ran Tweak Computer Support BBS, with some success, a very long time ago. I was a FidoNet node. I have nice teeth and love cheese amongst other things. I like Tools, and I've co-written some books. I'm diabetic. I like studying Amharic and Zulu/Ndebele and listening to African Music as well as other more diverse music. I know Black Hair and can both braid and cornrow. I have a podcast. I hack on hardware and waste time. I do Open Source. I am good at Excel and keep my resume mostly up to date for no reason. We speak Sign Language to my son and my wife speaks Ndebele. I have a great family and have had great teachers and a fantastic wedding with a great Cake Topper. I don't sleep too much. I write a lot. I'm trying to raise $50,000 for Diabetes research.

That's me, today. I'll be different tomorrow, hopefully better.
