Last Friday, September 13th was my last day at Microsoft. Coincidence was that it was Programmers' Day = 256th day of the year :)
It’s been awesome 5 years! I helped to ship the new Azure Portal, turned hackathon project into Microsoft product announced at //build keynote, helped SeeingAI with a few features, and for last two years helped to grow Azure Search. When I joined the team it was a startup. Now, it’s a mature Azure Service. Along with my everyday job I had awesome opportunities to speak at conferences and meetups around the World about my work. During my time at Microsoft I delivered almost 30 technical talks!
Along that journey I met a lot of awesome and inspirational people. Thanks to them my job was my passion. I was very lucky to have awesome bosses. I want to thank Andrew Birck, Ian Carbaugh, Madhur Joshi, Janusz Lembicz and Pablo Castro for everything they did for me. If you end up working for them, consider yourself very lucky!
Special thanks to Steve Sanderson, Scott Hanselman and Scott Guthrie! Their technical talks made me want to join Microsoft, when I was still in college!
Stay tuned for what's next!
