I have recommended so many times the book Developing the leader within you, I can’t even remember. Each time I read the book over the years, I found myself contrasting each chapter with different experiences I had along my career, making the chapters acquire different meaning to me. In this post I’m sharing a practical view on the concept of integrity. For a nicer read of the subject, I highly recommend reading Chapter 3 of Maxwell book.

The word integrity immediately resembles concepts like ethic or morality. “Moral uprightness”. I like to think of it as something less abstract and…

I cannot believe it’s been almost two years since I joined Autocosmos. It’s been a fantastic opportunity, which really marked my caracter as a manager and specially as a leader. Before joining Autocosmos I already had the opportunity to lead multiple teams and iniciatives, but directly managing a team was a completely new adventure for me. I cannot be more thankful with Martin, Marcelo, and the rest of the leadership team at Autocosmos for their support and guidance. I am also extremely proud and humbled of the teams I was able to develop and be part of. People who really…

There is a tipping point in everyone’s career. The moment you switch from Backlog consumer to Backlog producer. I’m using the word Backlog as it is commonly used in software development, however, I believe this applies to anyone’s career: In other words, I’m referring to the moment you stop waiting for someone to tell you what to do, and start thinking on what is needed, and doing it.

  • If you think you don’t need to do the switch, I want to share you my opinion on why you have to.
  • If you are starting to feel you are making the…

After almost six years and a half, I’m leaving my job at Microsoft, to join Autocosmos.com as CTO next March. Leaving Microsoft has not been an easy decision at all but I’m extremely excited about my new challenge. I’d like to share a few words to thank many folks I had the opportunity to work with these years, reflect on some of our achievements, and share some insights about my next role at Autocosmos.

My road at Microsoft

I joined Microsoft in November, 2007 as Developer Evangelist for the Microsoft South Cone region. A few eras ago if you think so in terms of…

At work, we really feel proud of the partner’s ecosystem we are honored to work with. We get involved in different kind of projects, sometimes related to building software, and many other times involving events organization and creating marketing assets.

I’ve learned there’s no better way to understand how to satisfy your customers, other than becoming a customer yourself, and understand what it means to “deal” with projects and…

If you reached this post I assume you:

  1. May be considering an evangelist position, or
  2. You’ve met one of us, and you’re trying to figure out what’s the job about.

The truth is that it really took me quite a while to fully understand the role. Over the years, the technical evangelist role at Microsoft has evolved, and I’m sure it will keep changing in the future. …
