Introducing Redmond Review

The current issue of Redmond Developer News features a newly arrived columnist. Starting in the Nov. 15 issue, which focuses on the just-concluded 2008 Microsoft Professional Developers Conference, Andrew Brust will be penning the Redmond Review column.

Andrew is chief of New Technology for consultancy twentysix New York, a Microsoft regional director, and co-author of Programming Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (Microsoft Press, 2008). He's also deeply engaged with the development community, serving as a member of the Microsoft Advisory Council and as co-chair of the VSLive! family of conferences.

We asked Andrew to write for us because he flat-out knows his stuff. As a regional director (in fact, he was recognized as Microsoft's Regional Director of the Year in 2008), Andrew has links both to the internal workings in Redmond and to the external concerns of Microsoft's customers. His grasp of technical issues and business concerns is both balanced and deep.

Andrew's Redmond Review column will appear every issue in the news section of RDN. He'll offer insight into Microsoft's strategic direction, provide critiques of important new technologies and generally help managers get a better grasp of the shifting development landscape.

You can find Andrew's inaugural Redmond Review column here.
