CodeProject's interview with Habib Heydarian, Microsoft Principal Group Program Mananger, at Build 2013.

CodeProject's interview with Habib Heydarian, Microsoft Principal Group Program Mananger, at Build 2013. We talk about what opportunities exist for the LOB (line of business) developer and .NET developer (hint: a LOT). We also discuss advice and ideas for developers regardless of stripe.

The goal of the interview was not only to hear what he had on his agenda, but also to take him out of his comfort zone a bit and ask him about bigger picture questions – like where development is going, and how developers can and should prepare for the future.

About the Author

Jeff Hadfield
United States United States
Jeff started with personal computers in the late seventies, when he learned to program BASIC on an Apple II (not an Apple II Plus, mind you). Since then, he’s learned Pascal, Fortran, COBOL and VB/VB.NET – all of which have been enough to show him that he’s not a born developer, but he can play one on TV, so to speak. (He's not bad at markup (HTML, CSS) but not good at JavaScript.)

Jeff has worked with developers and developer communities for 20 years. He is the former Editorial Director of WordPerfect Magazines (remember macros?). He's also the former Editor in Chief and Publisher of Visual Basic Programmer's Journal, Visual Studio Magazine, Java Pro magazine, Visual C++ Developers Journal, Exchange & Outlook Magazine, Enterprise Architect magazine, and Microsoft Architecture Journal. He also worked on the VBITS/VSLive! conferences and the various related websites for those publications and conferences. He has spoken and presented at many tech and marketing industry conferences and events.

He currently works to help businesses understand and reach developers better.

All things considered, he'd rather be cycling.
