Sara Ford talks with Dave Rael about developer productivity, learning to use your tools, disappointment, and deep human connections

Sara Ford is back at Microsoft on the Azure Identity team! Previously, she worked at GitHub and Microsoft... a couple of times. Sara started her career working on Microsoft's developer tools, including Visual Studio and CodePlex. She's authored a couple of books on Visual Studio with Microsoft Press. In 2015, Sara received her Masters degree in Human Factors (HCI / UX) at San Jose State University because she wants to make developer tools more usable. Sara's life-long dream is to be a 97-year-old weightlifter so she can be featured on the local news.

Sara's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Identify and take the next step
  2. Separate your inner product manager from you inner developer (and listen to the PM)
  3. Don't procrastinate
