You have landed on Daniel Stocker’s website. I am a Program Manager in
Microsoft’s Digital & App Innovation Tech Strategy team.

A little more about my job…

Microsoft has a unique set of developer services (e.g. GitHub) on offer that can help teams build better, more innovative, and more reliable software.

As a Program Manager in the strategy team, I sit at the intersection of product teams and the customer-facing field. In my role, I help sellers and engineers in the field tell our story. This – in turn – helps them empower developers and solve customer problems on the ground.

My role also extends to assisting and supporting product groups in delivering more customer-centric products. The support the team and I provide extends to finding good candidates for private preview customers, educating field personnel, and consolidating as well as validating key product feedback items.

The role is all about putting developers at the centre of the products that we create. Optimizing for the developer is something that is really close to my heart and something that will become increasingly more important as cloud platforms and engineering skill sets around them mature.

And the things I like to do outside of work…

In my spare time I enjoy learning about nutrition and putting that learning into practice in the kitchen. I also am also a big fan of aviation and like geeking out about travel.

I love to keep fit and go for a run, but I also don’t mind dinner and a show.

When I’m away from the big screen – but not quite all screens – I enjoy playing on my Nintendo Switch. I’m still trying to get better at Smash Bros and am always looking forward to the next Zelda.
