    • Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about your background and your talk today.
    • Topic 2 - Microsoft big data was Excel and visualization was Powerpoint. So what are you focused on today and what interesting things are you seeing people work on?
    • Topic 3 - What is a “Microsoft Developer” these days? What languages and frameworks are they focused on, or what tools and platforms?

    • Topic 5 - What are the things that surprise you the most (or are most disappointing) about how us old people act in technology?
