Microsoft History with Richard Campbell

Microsoft’s past is full of stories. It’s early period of corporate domination in the 1990s was followed by a period of government antitrust scrutiny, and a period of unsure product direction. Today, Microsoft’s focus on cloud has allowed the company to regain its footing with a clear trajectory for growth.

Since 2002, Richard Campbell has chronicled the Microsoft developer community as co-host of .NET Rocks!, a podcast that was originally about the C# .NET framework. Richard also founded Humanitarian Toolbox, an open source set of tools for assisting disaster relief organizations.
