At Seattle / Redmond working with Microsoft for ObjetDirect

I moved to another position, now working with ObjetDirect - France - as a Manager.

I'm in charge nationwide of the Microsoft Practice by developing our businesses and activities on at least the following topics:
  • ALM Software factory, 
  • Windows Azure, 
  • Microsoft consulting and development,
  • any other Microsoft technologies.
ObjetDirect, founded 15 years ago, addresses any domains that relates to software development and has developed agile methodologies and extended expertise on HTML5, Java, C/C++, PHP, Android, iOS, Enterprise Architect (by SPARXsystems). We are part of a larger company VISEO that takes care of complementary aspects (eg. SAP, BI, ...).

Obviously everything we're doing here is fully Agile ; why would I join ObjetDirect otherwise ?!?!
In addition, we are the sole company in France entitled to deliver Innovation Games® certified training, and we are very active as a community.

I got the opportunity to be invited by Microsoft on a worldwide NDA partnership in Redmond, to get trained and provide inputs on upcoming technologies (more info here).

Evening time: Seattle - Space Needle 

I would like to thank ObjetDirect and Edouard Danel, our CEO, whom I had the chance to meet though my numerous network in Paris (ranging from Agile, .Net, to PNL and "Transactional analysis"...).

The massive campus (like a town, and takes me about 30 min running from 1 building to another !!), all green grass and trees, and where we eat evening time:
