Amanda Silver is the CVP of PM for Microsoft's Developer Division which includes the Visual Studio family of products, .NET, TypeScript, and our developer platforms. She has been key to Microsoft's transformation to contribute to open source with the introduction of TypeScript, Visual Studio Code, and the acquisition of both Xamarin and GitHub. She believes that a tight digital feedback loop with zero distance between end-users and engineering teams is a critical element of great product development. Her latest projects include Live Share to enable real-time collaboration between devs, IntelliCode which infuses the developer inner-loop with AI, and Visual Studio Online which lets devs access their box from anywhere or instance a dev box from a repo. Unleashing the creativity of all developers is her unrelenting passion.
