Mark your calendars! Rob Craft, Senior Director for Cloud Strategy at Microsoft, will be delivering a keynote speech at vCampus Live! 2012 in San Francisco November 26-28. We are very excited to have him as a speaker given his vast areas of knowledge and influence with Microsoft. Here is Rob's biography:
Senior Director- Cloud Strategy
Rob is a 12 year veteran of Microsoft, joining the company at the end of the web bubble in 2000 after two fun startups. Initially focused on scalable application design in Windows, Rob moved on to become an Architect focused on helping customers and partners modernize and re-architect their applications on the latest technologies. He is passionate about the opportunity for companies to build amazing experiences on the Microsoft platform and was asked to lead the technology work with the top 200 ISVs worldwide for Microsoft. Doing deal negotiation and looking after execution of those deals occupied the next while, and then he was able to lead the initial Microsoft team focused on business development and technical efforts with key Cloud pure companies. Recently, Rob has returned to Redmond from Paris where he led the business operations for Microsoft International—all countries except US and Canada. This provided him with good perspective and customer feedback to his current role where he is focused on the Microsoft strategy for delivering the best cloud platform in the world. He attended the United States Military Academy, and is a graduate of the Microsoft MBA program from the Kelly School of Business.
