Someone Comes to DPE, Someone Leaves DPE (or: Welcome, Susan Ibach!)

susan ibachI may be leaving Microsoft’s Canada’s DPE (Developer and Platform Evangelism) team at the end of this week, but at the same time, we’ve got a great new addition to the team: Susan Ibach (she’s @HockeyGeekGirl on Twitter)! If you were at the TechDays conference in the past couple of years, you’ve probably seen her speak in one of the developer tracks, and if you were at TechEd New Orleans last year, you might have seen her infamous certification rap performed live.

Her gift is teaching. She’s been a Microsoft certified trainer for about a decade, she’s helped run hands-on labs at various Microsoft conferences, from PDC to the internal TechReady conference, she’s helped been heavily involved with our “Train the Trainer” events, explained the value of getting your Microsoft certification to countless devs and IT Pros and took part in the IT Grand Prix.

You can find out more about her in her inaugural post on Canadian Developer Connection. Welcome to the team, Susan!
