I worked on MSN, Live, and Bing Search at Microsoft, Ask Me Anything!

I worked on ~16 different teams within Search. I built high-volume, low-latency, highly-available distributed systems that served ~12,000 requests/sec.
I built a Big-Data Validation Framework as a side-project which was one of the largest cross-team grass-roots projects in Bing and later a candidate for the Microsoft Engineering Excellence Award.
I built a Machine Learning algorithm for Natural Language Processing to perform Sentiment Analysis and Attribute Extraction for reviews scraped across the web in the Computers & Electronics domain. It processed ~10,000 sentences/second.
I won a Hack-Day award at Bing on a prototype that optimized the creation of new services while maintaining the same level of performance as their predecessors in addition to reducing the time-to-market by several months.
Another Hack-Day project led to a patent in Intelligent Intent Detection from Social Network Messages.
Later, I worked on Exchange Server / Outlook (OWA & Outlook Mobile) as the Memory-Management & Performance expert.
