Microsoft has just hired Rob Connery from SubSonic, and his job is going to be to work on his own open source project.
I am very pleasantly surprised by that news, and this is the change of direction so many people have been waiting for I think.
I for one like this whole new direction of embracing open source. It seems like lately the party can’t stop, they also hired: Scott Hanselman, Phil Haack and Alex James. I should maybe start thinking about getting one aggregated feed from msdn :)
It’s good to see that open source projects are now being endorsed. I can’t wait to see what’s next.
