I am proud to announce that I have joined the team at Applied Information Technologies in Stuttgart, Germany. Founded in 1991, AIT has gained outstanding achievements over the years. In 2011 it became the first Microsoft Gold Partner for Application Lifecycle Management in Middle Europe, and was awarded as Microsoft DevTools Service Partner of the Year. AIT also is a Microsoft Gold Partner as Independent Software Vendor and has won the BQI Agile Leadership Award last year.
Every single member of the team is a deeply committed, skilled professional in their respective fields. You may know some of these people from conference talks, MSDN webcasts, print publications, from their leading role in the community as Microsoft MVPs, or simply from one of the countless projects they have completed successfully. Needless to say that I am thrilled to be a part of this company, and to contribute to the success and spirit of the team. Starting February 1st, my involvement will cover the full .NET stack as well as Silverlight, as a consultant, software architect and more.
What will this mean for my blog?
Short answer: nothing will change. I receive full support from AIT for what I do, and to continue my investments in the community and Windows Phone, so please expect the same quality and amount of blog posts, articles, webcasts and open source work for the community in 2012 as in the years before.
