Last summer I worked with one of my best friends, Matt Hester, on a new book entitled “Windows Server 2008 R2 Administrators Instant Reference” It was a great experience! I continue to focus on Windows Server and the amazing things it can do. Recently I did an interview with Matt talking about the book and about what its like to work as an IT Evangelist at Microsoft. The interview is featured on Bytes by TechNet, and it is worth viewing. I really feel blessed to work with such amazing people, and for a company who has the vision and flexibility to let me explore my own limits while furthering the cause of Windows Server.
