I am Chad Siefert, a test lead in the Windows Devices and Networking Team. Our team is responsible for the device foundation platform including plug and play, device discovery and association framework, IOMgr, and various other platform pieces that enable devices and Windows to work great together. I hike quite a bit and do a fair amount of camping. The Pacific NW is great for both. Right now I spend most of my time renovating the 100 year old house my wife and I bought in Seattle 3 years ago.
