I've just accepted an offer for a new job within Microsoft, on a team working on a secret project. Now that Office 2010 is out the door, this new team was my top choice of jobs, and I made the cut, so I'm pretty excited about that. It'll be a little annoying to not be able to tell anyone anything about what I'm working on, but I think that it will be a rewarding experience. I've really enjoyed working with my team, and some of these people I've worked with for the whole time I've been at Microsoft, but it's time for me to do something different, and this new team's planning on building something brand new and cool that I'm actually interested in. (As it turns out, I'm not actually that passionate about building workflows that run on SharePoint servers.)
This position was really competitive, and I have a small fear in the back of my mind that it's going to be hard to stand out on a team of superstars, but I do good work, and it'll be easier to do good work when it's something I'm excited to be working on. Should be fun.
