Welcome to the thirty-eighth Community Convergence. These posts are designed to keep you in touch with the activities of the C# team. We have a new blogger. Ed Mauer is a the Compiler Dev Lead for the C# team. He's going to be blogging about the compiler, and starts us off with a look at one of its new security features. We also have a siting of Alex Turner, the new compiler PM. He is featured in a microspotting interview in which he describes how he got Anders to pay him $200. I should also mention that Luca Bolognese, our PM lead, has also had a good chance to post over the Christmas holidays. Finally, our own Anson Horton was instrumental in creating the Visual Studio add-on for World of Warcraft!
