As I already anticipated last week, I left Calcium, and after looking for some possible jobs I choose to join Avanade, which, if you don't already know, is a global IT consulting company specialized in solutions using Microsoft enterprise technology, jointly owned by Accenture and Microsoft.

In the .NET world Avanade is famous because the first release of the Enterprise Library was based on the Avanade Connected Architecture for .NET (ACA.NET).

I'm pretty excited to start this new professional adventure, since I never worked for a big company and also Avanade seems to be using all the latest Microsoft products and technologies to deliver good products and projects (like its own Software Lifecycle Platform built on top of VSTS)

Looking on the Internet I also found out that there are quite a few employees blogging around, including the Avanade Americas CTO Tyson Hartman.

There is also a corporate blog aggregator where any employee can have a blog, or have his own blog resyndicated.

For now I've 3 weeks of sabbatical, where I'll probably enjoy a few climbing during the weekdays and then will work on Subtext, and then, will start working for the Avanade Italy on November 12th... Looking forward my Avanade laptop bag.

If you are a reader of my blog, and work for Avanade, please contact me or post a comment here: I'd like to know you.
