OK, new episode.

Ryan Zelen has also left Microsoft to work at Facebook

@h0x0d Ryan leaving really sucks. He was a great Engineer and Friend.— Matt G. Ellis (@ellism) 2015/5/21
and Micheal Sinz wrote a recommendation for him on LinkedIn
Ryan has been a great asset to our Midori and Wavefront teams here at Microsoft. He joined Midori and very quickly learned our culture of high quality, highly tested, high performance engineering.
His skills and knowledge have been very valuable in each project he was involved in, even as those projects have ranged in technologies from OS engineering, language design, speech recognition, large data analysis, etc.
I am very proud to have Ryan on our teams and would value him on any of my future teams.
and lastly, Slava Oks has rejoined SQL Server team.
