I have moved around a lot within Microsoft over the years. But I have always been in a role associated with Microsoft Office. From the hectic elementary levels of support to a heads down debug mad escalation engineer; from an enthusiastic beta tester to lead software engineer. Now I am in the field travelling roughly 40 to 46 weeks a year. As a Premier Field Developer, I primarily specialize in advisory based consulting with Azure solutions for Office 365 such as Office.js (Office Web Add-ins) and Graph API and older technologies such as Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) and Visual Basic for Application (VBA).
As part of my efforts as developer lead back in 2009/2010, I helped develop and release several official 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)
