Hamilton Verissimo, founder of the Castle Project with all its amazing goodness, will be joining Microsoft as a PM for the Managed Extensibility Framework. As Hamilton notes in his blogpost, MS is allowing him to continue his work on Castle. That's awfully, awfully cool!
This is another sign of the slow, terrific changes afoot at Microsoft. We need to be honest in our (valid!) criticisms of Microsoft, but we also need to be honest and give them props where they're due. Picking up folks like Hamilton, Phil, and others from the open source community ensures the positive changes at MS continue to move in the right directions. Pulling in folks like this ensures that certain mindsets in MS will continue to be changed for the better.
Very, very cool. Congrats, Hammett!
(BTW, Hamilton wrote a great article on the Castle bits for James's and my book.)
