Today we are thrilled to welcome industry veteran Jesse Liberty to Telerik as our new XAML Evangelist. Many of you know him as the host of Yet Another Podcast and author of Programming C#, Programming Reactive Extensions and LINQ, and Migrating to Windows Phone. His experience spans a variety of roles, including Software Architect for PBS, Vice President of Information Technology at Citibank, and, most recently, Developer Community Evangelist for the Microsoft Windows Phone Team.
As we continue to improve our XAML suites, our initiatives in the Windows 8 space will also continue to develop. Jesse joins fellow Telerik XAML Evangelists, Evan Hutnick and Michael Crump, in delivering the latest and greatest content and guidance for Silverlight, WPF, Windows Phone, and, increasingly, Windows 8. Telerik continues its dedication to offering the best software development products for all platforms (check out Telerik's Platform Guidance!), from the most mature to the most cutting-edge, and Jesse’s experience and enthusiasm for XAML will be an invaluable addition toward that effort.
You’ll soon be hearing from him on our XAML Team blogs as well as our ongoing XAMLflix blog series. And that’s just to start! So get psyched and stay tuned as 2012 promises breakthrough developments and significant enhancements to all things Telerik XAML.
Jesse’s thoughts about his new role can be read on his blog.
