Welcome to Microsoft

November 9, 2009

For the last several years, I've worked for a little company named Teamprise. And before that, I worked for a little company called SourceGear that gave birth to Teamprise. And, surprisingly, today I woke up and I work for a little company called Microsoft.

That's right, Microsoft has acquired Teamprise in order to provide our Eclipse and cross-platform tools even better support. While this may come as a surprise to many of our customers, it's obviously something that we've been quietly working on for several months in conjunction with developing Teamprise Client Suite 4.01, and it's something that we're all very excited about. Microsoft has hired the Teamprise development staff (myself included, of course) as well as adding some great new developers and testers to our team.

On a personal note, I'll be relocating to Microsoft's office in Research Triangle Park, NC. I'm certainly sad to be leaving Chicago, but I'm looking forward to be getting back into an office without a four hour commute.

We've all been working exceptionally hard to bring a very high-quality next release of the Teamprise Client Suite, and we've still got a lot of work to do, but we're very pleased to be bringing it to you right alongside the next release of TFS.

  1. Seems pretty likely that this won't be called "Teamprise Client Suite" anymore, however I have absolutely no idea what it will actually be called.
