Changing Roles

It’s been just about a year since I left Microsoft to take my current job, and after some success in my initial role, I’m switching teams and responsibilities.

I was brought into this company to help establish our BizTalk practice.  After participating in 10 projects, teaching 8 classes (to 110+ colleagues), creating a few tools and frameworks, and writing up some best practices and checklists, it was time for new challenges.

So, I’ve moved into our Solutions Architecture team as a Solutions Architect.  My job now is to execute architecture reviews, help define and guide architectural principles, design and model new systems, research and introduce new technologies, and more.   While I’ll remain the “BizTalk guy” here for a while, that’s no longer my central technology each and every day.

Blog-wise, expect to continue seeing various tidbits and demonstrations of BizTalk concepts (because it’s still fun for me), but I’ll probably start peppering in other architectural topics that are on my mind.
