Well this is my first post from Boston for 2005 (I wonder how many times I will be coming to Boston this year). Anyway I’m in Boston for a company Boot Camp to kick things off on the building our next generation platform.
It’s definitely been a pretty exciting week for me. I’ve had a chance to meet up in person with people like Kevin Hegg (this guy coding is a piece of art), Dwijen Patel (a database guru), Greg Raiz (an ex-Microsoftie) and Mihindu Senanayake (another ex-Microsoftie).
We are working on implementing a framework based on MSF at BTA and a lot of thought is going into how to customize the team and process models for BTA which is an application service provider. There is a lot of work ahead in terms of actually learning and applying the process successfully. I’m even considering taking becoming an MSF Practitioner when I get back to Colombo. (Update: By the time I was coming to the end of writing this post I already browsed over to the MCT Download Center and started downloading the course materials for Course 1846 – Microsoft Solutions Framework Essentials. I wonder if I will be able to read through all of it and be ready to take the exam by the time I reach Colombo on the 20th of this month).
