Chris is the Program Manager for Visual Studio Online "Monaco". In this role, Chris gets to work with an amazing group of engineers delivering Microsoft's hosted development experiences.

Chris started at Microsoft 20 years ago, answering the phones for Visual Basic 3.0, where he established himself as a champion for making the developer's life easier by providing great tool experiences that simplify building end to end solutions. Since then, Chris has had the privilege of working on teams that have delivered Visual Basic, C#, the Visual Studio IDE and Platform, the .NET Framework, and even the Productivity Power Tools.

A few years back Chris turned his attention to the cloud and joined the team that delivers the Monaco tools, which can be seen in a number of Microsoft online services including OneDrive, Visual Studio Online, the Office365 development tools ("Napa"), and even on the desktop in the F12 tools for Internet Explorer.
