Hello, I am Christiaan, Your Host.

Around 20 years ago, I discovered my interest in IT after replacing the existing case of my Pentium personal computer with one with a transparent LED side panel. From that moment, I found a new hobby, and I decided to study computer science to make my hobby my job. 

Today, I’m working as Principal Program Manager and Community Director at Microsoft building, delivering next-gen features to bring Windows to the Cloud. he works on features such as the Windows 365 app, Switch, and Boot. Christiaan is also an Author (4 books) and Inventor (4 patents). His mission is to drive innovation while bringing Windows 365, Windows, and Microsoft Intune closer together, drive community efforts around virtualization to empower Microsoft customers in leveraging new cloud virtualization scenarios.

With this podcast, I’d like to do something that I always wanted to learn before being part of a product — learn about all the stories behind it, how the invention and idea got started and other lessons learned.
