Suzanne Daniels - From Clippy to Kernel


Some of you might remember the iconic picture of Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, in front of the “Microsoft ❤ Linux” slide a few years back. Personally I lost track of this company shortly after the retirement of Clippy, so at that time this statement really surprised me. Skip to a few years later: Microsoft is now a major contributor to Open Source, Linux workloads are responsible for ~50% of Azure, and Windows will even ship with a genuine Linux kernel.

In this talk I’ll be sharing more on the Microsoft Open Source journey and we’ll take a look at some services in Azure you might find useful for your (Hybrid) Cloud situation.


Suzanne recently celebrated her 20th year working in IT. This in a variety of roles ranging from developer, linux consultant to architect. Now knowing this, you might not be surprised that her motto is “Do what you love”. She’s very passionate about her family, technology, and diversity inclusion.

Recently she joined the Microsoft partner organization as Technology Strategist, helping partners and customers do great things with Azure. Her focus areas are Open Source, App modernization and Developer productivity.
