Now that we have shipped the Windows SDK for Vista, the Windows SDK program management team is working on future releases and looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. We are a team of 9 individuals who do the planning, scheduling, coordinating, and driving that it takes to ship the SDK. We gather requirements and write specifications for SDK features, and we collaborate with multiple teams within Microsoft to collect and ship the content that the SDK contains. Our roles combine he responsibilities of release management with the challenges of driving the creation of SDK features. Each of us is passionate about providing content that helps customers be successful with Microsoft products. Some team members have worked on the SDK team for several years, and some of us just joined this year. I joined the team this past July, having worked on other projects at Microsoft for almost 9 years. My previous roles included being a writer for some Microsoft SDKs and managing the team that created and delivered most of the .NET Framework 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 documentation. My interests include quality standards for content, security technologies, and team building.
We’re hoping you’ll tell us what you think about the Windows SDK for Vista. What did we do well? What needs work? Thanks in advance for any time you spend sending us feedback.
