Interview With Brad Wilson On Microsoft And Open Source

code 0 comments suggest edit

There’s a great interview on the How Software is Built blog with Brad Wilson, a developer in Microsoft’s OfficeLabs team, but probably better known for his work on, CodePlex, and ObjectBuilder.

brad What I particularly liked about this post was the insight Brad provides on the diverse views of open source outside and inside of Microsoft as well as his own personal experience contributing to many OSS projects. It’s hard for some to believe, but there are developers internal to Microsoft who like and contribute to various open source projects.

Another reason that Brad gets a thumbs up in my book (along with Jim Newkirk) is that recently updated their installer to include test project integration with ASP.NET MVC Preview 2.

    Just started watching it, i'm excited to hear about the ins and outs of Microsoft employees contributing to Open Source projects. A friend of mine had to give up his work on an open source OS once he started there.
