Derik Stenerson first came to Microsoft on an internship as a Test Engineer on Microsoft Mail. After graduating, he joined Microsoft full time in the email group and worked in various roles on email and scheduling products, including Schedule+ and Exchange. His passion for calendaring and scheduling led to work on the iCalendar standard (IETF RFC 2445) and later on a hosted self-service scheduling solution for small businesses. For the past few years Stenerson has been exercising his other passion for user centered design while building features for Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
Next month marks the tenth anniversary of RFC 2445. To celebrate the occasion, Derik joins Jon Udell on Interviews with Innovators to discuss the past, present, and future of the venerable iCalendar specification.
