that's obviously a placeholder since the codename is Threshold. :)

well, just noticed Joe Duffy updated his About page to explain what Systems Programming Group does http://joeduffyblog.com/about/I am director of engineering for Microsoft's Systems Programming Group.
This group is advancing the state of safe, productive, and performant systems programming, and developing core compiler technologies, like the Visual C++ compiler, new efforts like .NET Native, and a few other things that I can't wait to blog about someday soon.
OK, so .NET Native is under this group, as expected, but ...... Visual C++ Compiler ? really ?
The Humans Are Dead http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ashleyf/archive/2014/09/21/the-humans-are-dead.aspxSadly, Microsoft has decided to kill the MSR Robotics team... My last day is today.
All that remains is a bunch of robots...
We were just starting to make inroads. Lots of buzz about use sponsoring iROS, the nav benchmark and contest, research papers and talks...— Ashley Feniello (@AshleyFen) 2014/9/20
a little bit more:
Chris McKinsey, the master of Phoenix, is also in "Systems Programming Platform Group"
Aug 2014 - PresentDevelopment manager for Systems Programming Platform Group
- Managing multiple development teams including C# ahead of time and just-in-time (JIT) compiler code-generation developers
Nov 2008 - Aug 2014Managed and lead a team building an optimizing compiler backend for C++ and ahead-of-time C# compilation for internal systems incubation project. Oversaw project planning, designs, and development. Developed many aggressive optimization techniques for managed code. Resulting code quality outperforms many industry shipping C/C++ compilers.
Sunny Chatterjee, from WinDiv static code analysis team, joined Systems Programming Group, and he confirmed that its actually part of DevDiv.Currently, I am part of the Systems Programming group in Developer Division, working on bridging the gap between compiler frontend and code analysis artifacts.
Aug 2014 - PresentI am a developer working in Systems Programming Group, Developer Division. I focus on static analysis technology.
Slavik Krassovsky, although left MSFT, revealed he has worked on Midori
Mar 2013 - Sep 2014Working on Machine Learning projects at Technical Strategy Incubation at Microsoft.
Developed Distributed Deep Neural Network system based on Midori platform for speech and image recognition.
this reminds me our own Sven Groot, who also worked on ML/DNN in TSI. colleague ? ;)
Jul 2013 - Present- Worked on async runtime and IPC framework for a research operating system project.
- Design and development of a large scale distributed platform for machine learning (particularly neural networks), as part of a research operation system project.
and Sergey Andreenko, a new Intern working on Midori/Phoenix
Jun 2014 - PresentMidori, Phoenix compiler
lastly, Rob McMillen, the Lab Manager
Jun 2014 - PresentSupporting Midori, IE, DevDiv and the greater OSG clan
