I was visiting Microsoft in March and here are some pictures I took outside the building where I worked (click to enlarge):

 

I also visited the company store where people were buying “Microsoft Brain” toy and saw one of the thickest software engineering books (1488 pages) there. Initially I hesitated to buy it because of its price but subsequently bought it nevertheless upon my return to Ireland:

MDAA Volume 1 Full-Color Collector’s Edition

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

Full-color special edition is available now. PART 6: Fun with Crash Dumps that features memory dump visualization pictures is the most impressive there. All screenshots and diagrams are color too.
