Niels Hilmar Madsen, Microsoft
Niels is a Developer Evangelist in the Developer and Strategy Group in Microsoft Denmark.
Since Niels graduated as a MsC. in Engeneering from the Technical University of Denmark, he has worked extensively with software development. He has worked as a journalist for ComputerWorld, written books about C# and Windows XP, and before joining Microsoft, he worked as a .NET developer for Danmarks Nationalbank.
Niels enjoys exploring and presenting new technologies as much as he likes writing about them. And because doing this alone is "a mission impossible", Niels works very closely with the developer community in Denmark to get the Microsoft developer message out and just as important - to gather valuable feedback to the Microsoft product groups.
Right now Niels is focused on Visual Studio 2005, C# 2.0, Yukon and ASP.NET 2.0.
