Chad Royal - the wall of Visual Studio customers

Download

Right click “Save as…”

We were hanging out in building 41 in Microsoft's headquarters the other day and saw a wall of customers' photos and a bit about what they were using Visual Studio for. So, we tracked down the guy responsible, Chad Royal, lead program manager, and got the story behind the wall.

Turns out that Chad has a blog and asked people who use Visual Studio to send in their photos to him.

Are you on the wall?

  • Is that Red Bull in the vending machine behind Chris?  If so, is it free? Looks free. If so, it looks like I'm going to be working at Microsoft one day.  Can't pass up a chance to work for a company that supports my caffeine habit.

    I've never seen any Red Bull in the refridgerators on campus, but there are plenty of caffeine-habit-supporting drinks. Not to mention the Starbucks in the cafeterias here.
  • The more I learn about Microsoft the more I really want to work there!

    No big screen digital screen on the wall?
    You could then scroll it or refresh it every few minutes, as your wall space will run out eventually when you guys are doing the right things Wink

    hah - I wouldn't entirely recommend it. I worked for an american company once that filled their fridges with free red bull. My addiction got to five a day before, luckily for me, the CFO cancelled the Red Bull invoice.

    Intervention!  At least it was free, I have to pay for my Mt. Dew habit.  Of course, if I didn't have to pay it would probably be much worse.
  • It's funny i find my self watching these videos and thinking the unthinkable. I mean really everyone so far that has been video'd by channel9 is so down to earth and well just another person like that i would meet next door. I grew up with the mindset that i'd never get to work in a company that i wanted like MS, IBM, Cisco etc. Due to well.. primarily the fact i've been shuffled from school to school since i was 6, and really had an impact on my resume Smiley Now im stuck in the caribbean and i'm desperatly trying to find time just to get some little accrediation from a distance education school so i can get some sort of certificate because i feel when i move back to the US its going to be a fruitless endeavour. But after watching the interviews with the recruiters and just listening to the MS staff talk it seems that maybe with a little work it just might be possible.

    It's good to see that, i know paperwork helps alot but its nice to see that drive, and experience and personality play some aspect to this.

    I know you may think this should be more posted on that recruiters video topic but really it reflects on this because this video shows that microsoft really isnt the big corporate evil dictator that some blogs and company's try to pass it off as. I mean here's a MS employee no he isnt some new recruit he's actively working but yet he has the time and state of mind to be grounded and remember he has to interact with these simple people out in the world using his teams products.
