Today is the official ten year anniversay of my hiring at Microsoft and it's been a great decade. Back in January 1995, Windows 95 hadn't yet shipped, DirectX was still a below the radar project and I had recently joined a small startup producing a 3D graphics API. Fast forward to a month later and we were building the foundation for Microsoft's 3D graphics vision.
In my time here I've shipped and helped out on numerous products including Reality Lab 2.0, Direct3D in DirectX 2, 3, 5 and 6, a VRML browser, IE 4.0, Flight Simulator 2000 and 2004, Combat Flight Simulator 2, Oddworld - Munch's Oddysee, NFL Fever 2000 and a fair few cancelled projects.
I've been a Program Manager, Developer, Development Lead, Development Manager and Software Architect.
On a more personal level, I've relocated from London, UK to Redmond, USA. I've acquired a house, wife, dog, son and a wonderful life.
It's been a blast. And it will continue to be a blast. Roll on the next decade.
