RE:

Hey there Sean! Thanks for the AMA. What motivated you to join Microsoft and what are some of the big challenges at your current job?

Most of this I lay out here in my blog post! https://medium.com/@TheLarkInn/leaving-for-microsoft-4f386c458693

However here is a quote I think sum's up the shift in Microsoft's culture, open source, and why I decided to work at MS.

"When you focus on Developers, your platform succeeds."

My biggest challenges now is continuing to learn how to do PM Work as well as Understand all the nuances behind the scenes with how, why, and when we ship features. Everything we do is for a reason. So if some feature is delayed, ask yourselfs "why would it be delayed", "are they working on underlying foundation for something more also?", etc.
