Makers

For the past year, I’ve been a developer in the Windows Maker team at Microsoft. The Maker team represents Makers within Microsoft; ensuring that Microsoft products have the capabilities that Makers want. We bring Microsoft technologies to the Maker community, through demonstrations – documentation, samples, and projects.

The Windows Developer Program for IoT – a version of Windows 8.1 for the Intel Galileo – was the first big project to come out of Windows specifically for Makers, and was collaboration between the Maker team and the Windows Embedded team.

WindowsOnDevices.com is out launch point for our Maker engagement.

With Windows 10, many of the learnings of the developer program are coming to light. I can’t wait to play – both professionally and personally…
