How different is working as a product manager for developer facing products like Azure Data Studio from other non-technical products like MS Office?
One of the key differences is where both products are in the product life cycle. MS Office has been around for a very long time with high adoption and dependencies across many industries. This means that change can take more time as there needs to many approvals to go through to ensure it doesn’t break customer experiences for many edge cases.Working on Azure Data Studio is a product that recently went GA and is all available on Github. It’s an exciting time because we can work on features in a hackathon and potentially get the experience out to customers the same day.Both are important experiences and have different requirements, but I’m personally enjoying this experience
