About

bhitney Hi there.

I’m Brian and I’m a developer evangelist at Microsoft.  What is a developer evangelist (DE)?   DE’s can focus on many different areas both geographically and technologically; I work with community groups and customers in the southeast U.S., delivering presentations on the Microsoft developer platform. 

Keeping up with current technology trends is a challenge.  My job is to help make sure we’re getting solid information out there for developers and technical decision makers.

In my spare time, I develop applications as an indie developer, with a particular passion around geo-based applications, mash-ups, and astronomy.

Have a question or comment?  Visit my contact page and I’ll get back to you quickly!
