Hi, I’m Mohit Srivastava, and this is my blog. I’ll use this space to blog on topics that align with my professional passions. That means software, cloud, product management and entrepreneurship. That said, I spend a lot of my personal time on these topics, so it’s not exactly a professional blog. Accordingly, the views here are mine and not those of Microsoft, my employer.

I’m currently at Microsoft and have run a number of product management teams delivering web and cloud development products – services, tools and SDKs. Recently, this has included Visual Studio Web tooling and Azure API development services. I love it because I get to keep my geek side up-to-date while interacting with all kinds of folks, external and internal. Prior to that, I was co-founder and CTO of Faves.com (formerly Blue Dot), a microblogging startup. We ultimately did not make it but had a number of successes along the way, including being named one of TechCrunch’s “Web 2.0 Companies I Couldn’t Live Without”.
