Hi There.  I’m Anne Hamilton, the content publishing manager for Microsoft Press. I work with the planning and editorial team to ensure that we’re creating a great portfolio of titles for IT professionals, developers, and information workers.  We want to make sure that we’re creating fantastic content that enables you to have the best possible experience with Microsoft tools and technologies. I work across groups and teams within and beyond Microsoft to explore the big picture to keep the Microsoft Press title list holistic, relevant, and timely.  I especially enjoy collaborating with the authors, planners, and editors who do such tremendous work on each of our titles.  From an idea to your hands, each book we make requires a dozen or more stakeholders to unite around a common vision and deliver compelling content to help you be  successful with our products.  That’s the magic which has kept me in technology publishing for over twenty years.

I’ll pop in occasionally with thoughts about how our series and portfolios are evolving to address the changing landscape in technology publishing.  From the consumerization of IT to the integration of cloud technologies, Microsoft Press has a whole lot of innovation going on to better serve you.  If you have questions or ideas to share, please contact me at anneham@microsoft.com.
