Phil Haack (yes, it's pronounced "hack") works at GitHub finding ways to make it better for .NET and Windows developers everywhere. Prior to GitHub, he was a senior Program Manager at Microsoft responsible for shipping ASP.NET MVC, NuGet, among other projects. These projects were released under open source licenses and helped serve as examples of the open source model for shipping software to other teams at Microsoft.
Phil is a co-author of the popular Professional ASP.NET MVC series and regularly speaks at conferences around the world. He's also made several appearances on technology podcasts such as .NET Rocks!, Hanselminutes, Herding Code, and The Official jQuery Podcast.
