The poor start is only with respect to blogging. Everything else has gone well. I’ve settled into life in the US and have been at work for two months, in which time I’ve done a lot of things I can’t talk about (yet) and some that I can.
I’m on the Python Tools team at Microsoft and our main project is Python Tools for Visual Studio (PTVS). We’re also the team responsible for supporting Python on Windows Azure and the PyKinect library for the Kinect SDK. Admittedly, between ramping up and other (unannounced) work, I’ve only contributed a few features and fixes.
I’ll probably write some blogs on those features. As I’m a developer and not a Program Manager, I promise that any such blogs will be filled with code and not marketing. While I could probably get a Microsoft-hosted blog (and will quite likely be asked to contribute to one), I’ve already committed to keeping my current site alive, so I’ll mainly post here and cross-post anything I do elsewhere.
Finishing on a more personal note, moving into a new apartment is hard when you don’t have any furniture, nor enough money to buy new furniture. Wait, let me rephrase. Moving is incredibly easy without furniture; living for the next month or two is not so comfortable. The lesson: purchase furniture early and put it into storage. Or find a place that has a really comfortable floor.
