Former Windows chief Steven Sinofsky launches new 'Learn by Shipping' blog

Steven Sinofsky Stock 1020

Former Windows and Windows Live president Steven Sinofsky abruptly left Microsoft late last year shortly after the company shipped Windows 8. As the head of Windows, Sinofsky played a vital part in shipping Windows 7 and Windows 8 on time. He is now turning his attention to writing a blog about product development and management after announcing his plans to teach at Harvard Business School.

The new blog, entitled Learn by Shipping, will see Sinofsky return to his habit of documenting processes and decisions around product management. Sinofsky wrote a number of lengthy articles during the Windows 7 and Windows 8 development phases and Learn by Shipping "picks up where these blogs leave off" he says. Those who are hoping he might shed some light on his Microsoft departure will be left disappointed. Sinofsky says "this blog won’t be about specifics or the past regarding Microsoft."

Thanks, Sebastian!
