Peter Maynard - An Englishman in Belgium, Microsoft, Liverpool & banter Thijs Feryn's podcast

    • Technology

Peter Maynard (https://twitter.com/lilepeeps) is a Senior Audience Evangelism Manager at Microsoft. He focusses on Emerging Audiences and is part of the Developer Experience team in Belgium & Luxembourg (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/belux/).

This episode also has video, it's up on Youtube: https://youtu.be/iia3FaW30_I

Peter is an Englishman, hailing from the North West of England. He now lives in Belgium. We talk about what it's like living in Belgium as a "foreigner".

The majority of the episode is dedicated to his work at Microsoft. He talks about Microsoft as a company that is in flux. Peter explains what the strategy is behind their change towards a subscription-base model and what the role of the typical Microsoft partner is in that situation.

We also focus on developers and how Microsoft targets them, as well as emerging audiences that don't necessarily have a technical background.

In the end there's a bit of talk about his other passion: football and more specifically Liverpool FC.

The entire talk was very informative, but above all funny too. Let's say there was a fair share of banter involved.
