Hello! My name is Steve Lange and I'm a Developer Technology Specialist for Microsoft based in the Denver, CO area. I am an original holder of this role, and have been at Microsoft since 2005.
As a Developer Technology Specialist, I serve as a field expert for Microsoft’s high-end development and application lifecycle management tools, specifically Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server, Test Professional, Lab Management, Release Management, and Azure. My “normal” responsibilities include presenting a variety of technical topics (from version control, work item tracking, testing practices, requirement practices, and ALM solutions) for individual customers or at larger events, developing content for events, and helping customer understand the breadth and depth of Microsoft’s development technologies.
My official role at Microsoft has me focusing on small and mid-size Microsoft customers across the Western United States:
That said, I'll never turn down a conversation with anyone!
I've been working in the fields of software configuration management, requirements management, and application lifecycle management since 1999. Prior to joining Microsoft, I worked as a Systems Engineer for Borland Software and Starbase Software.
