My New Role: Developer Evangelist at Telerik

Ever since my recent departure from Microsoft, many of you have asked what my next role will be. So, here it is:

I am tremendously excited to announce that I will be joining Telerik as a Developer Evangelist at the APAC office in Sydney, Australia. My role will be to engage and support the developer community, helping them better understand Telerik’s products and technology areas like .NET, HTML5, and much more. My family and I will be relocating to Sydney on October 9th.

I have been a fan of Telerik for many years and have already been impressed with its products. Over the past number of years, Telerik has expanded beyond its fantastic UI controls to a number of tools and technologies that totally kick ass. Telerik is a market-leading provider of end-to-end solutions for application developmentautomated software testingagile project management, reporting, and content management across all major Microsoft development platforms. I was also impressed with Telerik’s commitment to supporting the developer community.

When this opportunity presented itself, it was a perfect fit for a number of important reasons. First, I’ve always loved Telerik’s products. I would strongly urge you to check them out; they warrant your serious attention. Second, my wife and I were already planning to relocate to Australia. Third, the developer communities in Australia and New Zealand are super-ultra-mega awesome. I want to support these great developers and help them out through Telerik’s offerings. And finally, it’s an opportunity for me to expand my experiences and skill sets. As many of you who know me, I’m all about career development. This role will challenge me in new and interesting ways. I’m looking forward to grabbing the bull by the horns and making a huge impact.
