Senior Program Manager
Lucian Wischik is a Senior Program Manager at Microsoft, in charge of Visual Basic language design. He has worked on the VB and C# compilers for five years - particularly on the new Async language feature.

Despite this theoretical background, he's most at home when writing practical code. He's a keen sailor and long-distance swimmer.
