4th Week at Microsoft!

4th Week at Microsoft!

I’m closing in on my 4th week as a Microsoft employee. It’s been great meeting new people, reconnecting with others and generally learning about and exploring this vast place and my new role. Some highlights so far have been watching The Future of SharePoint event live on-campus with product team members, receiving my first big assignment of documenting the SharePoint mobile app and participating in the Collab 365 Summit which had a live segment filmed about a mile from my office.

The new SharePoint app – it’s Mobile!

The new SharePoint app – it’s Mobile!

3 years ago, SharePoint Apps were a development topic. Last year, the “app model” name was changed to the “add-in model.” May 4th, 2016, with the announcement of “the SharePoint mobile app,” last year’s change seems more appropriate. I’ve always thought “the app model” suggested mobile app development. The change to “the add-in model” has been kind of hard to explain to developers.  Whether or not the change  in name was necessary to introduce the SharePoint mobile app, the mobile app […]

Put May 4th on your SharePoint Calendar

My first week as a Microsoft employee is complete and I’m excited!   Not only has it been a dream of mine to work for Microsoft, but it’s also a great time to be at Microsoft.

I’m Working for Microsoft!

I’m Working for Microsoft!

I’m happy to announce I’ve accepted an offer to work for Microsoft full-time! Starting in April, I’ll be a Senior Content Publisher in the Modern Assistance and Support Experience (MAX) group. We’re moving to Seattle! For me, this is really the culmination of a dream I’ve had for a long time. The first time I applied to work at Microsoft was in 1997, as a senior in Computer Science at Northwestern. If I recall correctly, the only response to my application […]

Daft punk in code. The bells.

Daft punk in code. The bells.

Aerodynamic in Sonic Pi sounds great. There’s just one thing that bugged me. The bells. The walk-through, featured on Hacker News, Techcrunch, Twitter and more, explains the code for the song in detail. And, the author  writes that the sound, or timbre, of the bells in the intro isn’t quite right. Working on this project takes me back to my college days. Back when I was a Music Performance and Computer Science double major at Northwestern, I would get questions. […]

New Opportunities

New Opportunities

After two and a half years in Sales Engineering at Jive Software, I’m exploring what’s next for me. I’ve enjoyed my time as both a Subject Matter Expert on SharePoint and as a Field Sales Engineer. And now, it’s time to move one. At Jive, I’ve had the opportunity to work with leaders across the company. I consulted and co-produced work with IT, Engineering, Product Management and Product Marketing. As I visited and collaborated with different groups, I was also learning how […]

Here’s a summary of the first 7 videos: Day 1 Day 1 is shot from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport and includes a clip of me practicing a Toastmasters speech. Day 2 Day 2 includes some tips […]

Don’t Talk. Or, Listen to Improve Communications.

Don’t Talk. Or, Listen to Improve Communications.

One day more than 30 years ago, John Francis stopped talking. And a funny thing happened next. As he says it, “I started listening. For the first time in a long time.” Walk the earth … my 17-year vow of silence Quiet Quiet was the theme of the Ted Radio Hour episode I listened today. It really struck me how important quiet is to communications. How can you listen if you can’t hear? John Francis took it to the extreme. […]

Social Intranet Resources Needed

Social Intranet Resources Needed

Search google or Amazon for the words “social intranet” and you won’t find a lot of great resources. Why is that? I started a conversation on twitter today asking a similar question and was lucky to have a number of very experienced intranet developers respond. Who Cares? When I do a search for “social intranet” on the Jive Community, I see a totally different picture. Consulting companies are talking about it: Making Good on the Social Intranet Promise, by Wes Goldstein, […]
