S. Somasegar is the corporate vice president of the Developer Division at Microsoft. Learn more about Somasegar.
I like to take the chance to talk directly to the development community as often as I can. I commonly use outlets such as this blog, but sometimes I get the opportunity to speak out loud instead of through my keyboard via sites like Channel9 or .NET Rocks!. I had the chance to talk to Richard Campbell and Carl Franklin last week on their weekly broadcast of .NET Rocks! – an internet audio show for .NET developers. This is a great show that has a wide range of topics from introductory information to some deeply technical talks. The viewership is just amazing as well with over a million downloads per show.
In this show, we mostly talked about my career at Microsoft from the early days of working on OS/2 and Windows NT to today running developer division and what it is like to lead a large software development organization. You can listen to the recording here. It was fun to chat with these guys and I look forward to doing it again in the future.
