At the recent Silverlight 3 UK launch I got a chance to catch up with Ian Ellison-Taylor who’s Microsoft’s General Manager for Presentation Platform and Tools.
As usual at Microsoft, I had to ask for a translation around what that job title means and, in simple words, Ian owns;
WPF and Silverlight
which makes him a very interesting chap to chat to 🙂
Ian kindly keynoted the launch event for us and even agreed to answering semi-random questions from me around WPF and Silverlight so I captured the chat that we had on video and dropped it out to Channel 9 here;
Whilst Ian has the scary word “manager” in his job title 😉 it’s very, very obvious from chatting to him that he “knows his stuff” inside and out and can talk at any level about what we’re doing around presentation technologies – seriously impressive stuff.
