About Mauricio Ordoñez

I'm a director in Microsoft's Developer Division and my team specializes in outreach to the developer community and independent software vendors. 

After graduating from the University of Maryland I started work in the software industry writing graphics software on the Windows 2.03 "Operating Environment".  I joined Microsoft in 1994, and I have worked in a variety of roles in our corporate headquarters in Redmond, WA and in the field.

When I'm not in front of a computer monitor I like cycling, playing golf, traveling, reading, sailing, and spending time with my family.
