I have moved around a lot within Microsoft over the years. But I have always been in a role associated with Microsoft Office or Collaboration Technologies. From the hectic elementary levels of support to a content manager for the knowledge base, a head down debug mad escalation engineer to an enthusiastic beta tester and was even a lead software engineer. Now I am in charge of collaboration experiences in the Microsoft Azure Fabric as I move customers from on-prem solutions towards Azure and Office 365. Office Development is still a passion of mine as I lead an internal World-wide Community of Office developers at Microsoft.
As part of my efforts, I helped develop and release several tools that have been published to the web:
- Microsoft Office 2010 Code Compatibility Inspector
- Microsoft Office 2010 Environment Assessment Tool
- Microsoft Office Labs Speed Launch – no longer posted on OfficeLabs, but you can find a few articles about it here and here and a summary page here (with other OfficeLabs tools).
- The PowerPoint Export to CD Wizard (no longer available, but it is now a built-in part of PowerPoint)
- Office OpenXML File Viewer
- Office Web Add-in Side Loader
- Excel File Cleaner
- The Microsoft Office Development Environment Setup (MODES)
- easyEWS for Outlook Office.js Development
- 5entences Web Add-in for Outlook
- Trello Taskpane for Word
- And more recently several Trello Power-ups:
