Hanselminutes Podcast 100 - Building Community with Norm Judah - CTO of Microsoft Services
My one-hundredth podcast is up. Madness. This week I talk to Norm Judah, the CTO of Microsoft Services. We talk about running a world-wide multi-cultural organization of 16,000 consultants, building online community, and writing green software.
We spoke at Microsoft TechReady6, an internal Microsoft version of TechEd just for the field. Norm conceived and organized this massive conference in order to get the field up to date on the all the cool stuff coming out of development centers. Whip smart, yet still accessible, Norm was very cool to take time from his insane schedule and talk to me. I hope you enjoy it.

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.
Telerik is our sponsor for this show.
Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.
As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)
Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?
