My last project at Vertigo
Before recently taking a job in product management at PayPal, I worked for five years in various roles at Vertigo Software, a boutique software consulting firm. Four of those years were dedicated to leading Vertigo's largest project, the development of Microsoft's digital locker technology, followed by the website that uses it, Windows Marketplace.
In the developer community, Vertigo has a long reputation of building high quality sample applications that show off a new technology in a real world setting. Vertigo combines well thought through, elegant code with friendly, engaging user experiences. They're a talented group of folks who are passionate about their work.
In my last months at Vertigo, I was privileged to lead the team of designers and developers charged with designing and developing a showcase application for Microsoft Silverlight. I saw on Tim Sneath's blog today that the final version has launched; it's called Video.Show (here's a live preview).
Update: Jon Galloway has a great post with a lot more detail on the project. Jon joined Vertigo just before the project started; he built the majority of the site's infrastructure and worked on the player.
