Q&A and Wrap-up

Thomas Lewis Bio

Thomas Lewis is a Technical Evangelist at Microsoft who at 8 years old thought that there was a frog apocalypse happening in his yard. It just turned out that the rain made all the frogs come out and hop around. He has been at Microsoft for over 12 years and has evangelized everything from Visual Basic 6 to HTML5 to Design for web developers and designers world-wide. He even once ate a “century egg” while in China. When not talking about the brutality of HTML5, Design and Windows 8, he enjoys his family, wine, death metal and all things 80’s.  He is also bent on eradicating IE6 from the planet and will never stop, never.
