As we approach the end of 2021, I would like to take a moment to reflect on the incredible achievements we’ve made at Microsoft and to extend my heartfelt gratitude to my fellow Microsofties.
❤ My dear fellow Microsofties, I have learned a lot from you and would like to thank you for the great teamwork, it was a lot of fun! This year I was able to achieve an incredible amount thanks to your support and the omnipresent growth mindset at Microsoft.
Key Milestones and Microsoft Achievements
🔬 Mixed Reality for Life Sciences: This year, we elevated mixed reality for our life sciences customers like Ottobock, making the world more inclusive and healthier.
📚 Literary Accomplishments: As you may know, I love to write. I was able to finish two book projects: for the book Decisively Digital, I interviewed 24 thought leaders on Digital Transformation. We also finished the German-language book Datenvisualisierung mit Power BI.
🎓 Technical Leadership Development Program (TLDP): Graduating from TLDP, a sort of tech MBA, was a fantastic experience, enhancing my next-gen tech focus.
👾 Microsoft Global Hackathon Award: Together with over 40 colleagues, we won an award at Microsoft Global Hackathon, the world’s largest privately-organized hackathon. Patent pending!
The Microsoft Global Hackathon is the world’s largest private hackathon. This year’s hackathon witnessed participation from 67,633 hackers from 92 countries working on 6,394 projects.
I am very pleased to announce that the project I led during the Microsoft Global Hackathon 2021 was awarded for the Hack for Hybrid Work Executive Challenge. The focus of this challenge was on using data and technology to help make #hybridwork more inclusive, effective, and fun!
Now I’m very excited to see what our hack will look like in the final product and how it will influence a healthy lifestyle. A patent for the project has already been filed. (That would be my very first patent! 🙂 )
In total, 46 hackers across many time zones worked on this project. Congratulations to the great team – I will always value the opportunity to work with you on such a meaningful project:
