Hi Suz, thank you a lot for doing this AMA~!
What's the coolest thing about working for Microsoft? Do you have a fancy office? Special snack time?
What is your (and your colleagues') take on opensource tools, which are in direct competition with MS products? Stuff, like Linux distros, Redox, LibreOffice, MariaDB, etc. Do you embrace them, take ideas from them and use them alternatively sometimes, or are they completely banned?
What is the single most important thing in the world of IoT development you are missing? How do you think the situation could be remedied?
Hey Suz, thanks for doing the AMA - I'm also a big fan of your twitch stream!
