Microsoft’s Best Presents At NANOG55 Event - by Guest Blogger - Petr Lapukhov



North American Network Operator Group, or NANOG, is an open forum bringing together network engineers from the US/Canada’s largest Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and enterprises. The main goals of NANOG meetings are exchanging ideas, presenting designs, giving tutorials, learning new things, and sharing operational experience. The event is very popular among network operators, and gathers hundreds of people three times a year. You can meet people from the industry leading companies, such as ours and other loud names (Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter) and large ISP’s such as Level3 Networks. In addition to technical content, every meeting includes social events, giving participants chance to build connections and peer with colleagues.


The recent NANOG55 event was in Vancouver BC, and there were nearly 30 Microsoft folks in attendance, most of them from Global Networking Services department (GNS). We delivered two talks on the work we have done for Online Services Department (OSD). Petr Lapukhov (Petr’s Talk) presented the large-scale data center routing design we leverage for Microsoft online services such as Bing, Ad Center, MSN portals and so on. Those environments present unique challenges as they have a large-scale server footprint. You can follow and engage with Petr on twitter @petrlapu. The other presentation came from GNS core engineering team and was delivered by Vijay Gill (Vijay’s Talk) and David Schmidt. It talks about the software system GNS uses for automated network device configuration management and verification. Both topics are very hot in the networking industry, and highly interesting to network operators who grow their infrastructure. You can follow and engage with Vijay Gill on twitter @vgill.  Though Microsoft is occasionally criticized for being too closed and protective of its “secrets,” the reality is that we are fully open to sharing our ideas and experiences with the broad networking community.  The Global Foundation Services Team will be hosting a recruiting event in Redmond, Washington from July 23 thru July 27, 2012 (travel & accommodations for qualified applicants included).

6 Billion Reasons Why Mobile Recruiting Makes Sense


One of many reasons why I am so passionate about mobile revolution is the possibilities of creating ways to connect with the diversity talent that is in the palm of our hands!

As recruiters, we are creating best practices surrounding effective mobile strategies to engage candidates from the mass- mobile-messaging campaigns across the wide-spectrum of the mobile industry. Globally the diversity marketplace has the widest-range which includes cultures, politics, and technologies with of course socio-economic which is the key differences!

Think about it, at the end of 2011, there were 6 billion mobile subscriptions, estimates by The International Telecommunication Union (2011). That is equivalent to 87 percent of the world population, and is a huge increase from 5.4 billion in 2010 and 4.7 billion mobile subscriptions in 2009. Holy Cow Batman!! That is an amazing numbers right? Can you say the same about personal computers? continue

Land An Interview For Your Dream Job By Your Mobile Resume. – By Kay Kelison


With today's mobile space, employers are creating mobile websites to allow professionals to be notified when the right job comes along. So you have signed up to receive a notification about an opportunity that you'd like to apply for and you don’t have access to your resume. Now, you might be one of those who will wait to get home to your computer to send it, or maybe you might even forget or be too late in applying because of the what type a day you are having. However, if you had a mobile app that could create a mobile resume that could be submitted via mobile no matter where you are this would give you another edge from others in your job search. Below I have given some instructions to how to create a resume, and some of the apps with iPhone, Android, Windows.

Suggested Steps

v  Choose a mobile app that allows you to create a resume. These mobile applications should allow you to access your resume from your mobile device. Important to review and the app should allow you to create and share your resume with potential employers.

v  Create an account through the apps website. These apps allow you to upload or create your resume online or mobile. You can then use resume as a doc to upload to an employer’s website. You can also create a word doc on your computer, save it in a PDF file, down load the PDF reader which will allow you to open your resume in a PDF, and send it via email, etc. Pretty cool.

v  Be sure to enter your relevant information into a mobile application of your choice from your mobile device. A popular application is Resume Bear ( for both iPhone and Android mobile devices. This free application allows you to send your resume to potential employers from your phone and see who has been reading your resume. It’s my favorite on usability, simplicity and the fact you can see has been reading your resume….pretty sweet!

v  Most importantly! Keep your resume updated with current information. Remember that potential employers are looking at and asking for your resume, whether it is on a website or in your mobile application.
