    The Intern Perspective: Andrew Buckley

    Posted By J.T. Kimbell
    Program Manager

    It’s time to meet the last of our three Explorers, Andrew Buckley, who will tell us about his experience this summer and how it was similar and differed from Meg and Colleen’s.  Look for a post from all three of them at the end of this week telling you more about their project.

    Background

    Howdy! My name is Andrew Buckley and I was one of 3 explorer interns on the Windows Embedded team this summer. I will be a sophomore this fall at Washington University in St. Louis studying Computer Science and Computer Engineering. I was born and raised in West Palm Beach, FL and I really enjoy soccer, basketball, running, and playing the violin. This fall will be my second semester as a Teaching Assistant for one of the introductory computer science courses.

    These are a few of your favorite things…about Ford SYNC

    Posted By Chris Elliott
    Senior Marketing Communications Manager

    We wanted to know what you thought about Ford SYNC, so we asked.

    And you answered!

    SYNC fans tweeted their favorite features of the system for a chance to win an Xbox, a Microsoft keyboard or an Arc Touch Mouse. The overwhelming favorite was the ability to control SYNC with your voice. Many of you loved the Audible text messaging feature, and told us that going hands- and eyes-free makes you drive safer.

    Agility, Team work and Pragmatism

    Posted By Phillip Cave
    Software Development Engineer

    successThis week the extended developer (SDE) leadership team in Windows Embedded had a lively discussion around “agile” and how to foster a collaborative team effort. I followed up with the extended leadership team to help them understand some of the nuances of the transformation we are making.

    The discussion was kicked off asking how we may focus working as a unit to ship product. A misunderstanding arose about specialist vs. generalist team members, how to review contribution, and an overall misconception about being flexible in an agile environment. What follows was my response to the team.

    Yes, foster domain/technology specialists. Of course we should foster expertise around key areas of our product so that we may create technical leadership. Think of the system while doing so. Ensure we have redundant knowledge so that we do not constrain ourselves when delivering product.

    Yes we have an HR review model to evaluate team members. However, an HR review system or rather our interpretation of an HR review system should not dictate how we deliver product.

    Based on our discussion what I heard was that we are going to be evaluated based on the good things we deliver. This is as it should be. Our contribution to delivering product and the leadership on delivering product is all that matters.
