About this Episode

Julia Liuson joined Microsoft 25 years ago working as a developer on Microsoft Access.  Continuing her work in the Visual Studio space, Liuson now is the corporate manager of developer tools and services. Changes started to come five year ago when Satya Nadella became CEO and quickly acted to start changing the company culture and embrace cloud services.

"Back then, as a developer, you simply weren’t allowed to look at open source software without an approval from VP," Liuson said about Microsoft. "That was just four years ago. Can you imagine?”

Three years ago came the real push to open source and what Liuson describes as an obsession with customer satisfaction, backed by engineering deliverables, cultural shift and delivery.
