More change for Microsoft’s dev team

Another two people on the .NET leaving for, you guessed it, Google… this time it’s Jim Huginen (IronPython, C# teams) and Chris Burrows (C# compiler team).

This follows a lot of other people that have been very active in the community / C# / .NET teams but have moved on in the last year or so e.g. Luca Bolognese, Sara Ford, core people on the Silverlight team (can’t remember who it was).

Seems like a bit of a domino effect at the moment… I’m sure that there are other very good people still there but you do wonder why so many are leaving at the moment, and a not insignificant number are going to Google as well.
