It’s been an amazing two-and-a-bit years at Microsoft. I got to write security bulletins and advisories, and reboot a bazillion computers (sorry about that) in the MSRC. I helped secure new releases of Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server, SignalR, Azure Web Sites, and other products as a member of MSEC. I made dear friends and worked on fun side projects in the Garage, and got to help build the new Maker Garage at the Microsoft Library. I can’t wait to see what the future will bring for everyone I had the privilege of working with and the rest of the company as well. Thank you all.
But it has come time for me to heed the siren call of San Francisco and head south, like a Canada Goose (minus the biting). This weekend I’m loading my life into a truck and heading to San Francisco to join the Heroku security team. I’m excited to be working with Jacob Kaplan-Moss and Matt Zimmerman, two longtime friends and mentors, both of whom happen to also be awesome advocates for women in tech.
I’ll be handing over my responsibilities at the Seattle Attic Community Workshop to my capable co-founders, and am really stoked to have already been accepted as a member of Double Union down in SF :)
For my Seattle peeps, I’m organizing a small going-away thing on Friday evening, ping me by email (leigh at hypatia dot ca) or on Twitter if you want to know when/where.
