No joy in mudville 2: Microsoft’s loss

Microsoft Canada had an open position for “.NET Architect Evangelist”, for which I applied. “It’s as if they made the position just for you!” a number of my friends said.

I got a call back today, saying that while my technical skills, presentation savvy and evangelism experience were a good fit, I didn’t have enough experience with — yup, that again — programming “enterprise systems” (in other words, large systems for medium-to-large businesses).

I guess developing this, this and this don’t count, despite the fact I’m sure these are precisely the sorts of things that at least half of all the potential .NET developers will be building.

So sue me for wanting to develop software for the little guy.
