What’s it like to work for Microsoft?

Day 1: They gave me a Surface Pro 3 to use. A Surface Pro 3. 

This was a huge day for me. I couldn’t believe they lent me a Surface Pro 3 to use for my co-op term at Microsoft. Rewind to the start of university when I had picked up a Surface of my own. Again, a huge day for me. Not only could I use my Surface Pro 3 at home for my web dev and graphic design… I could now do the same at work. I swear to God, my job doesn’t even feel like a job. I’ve heard that’s a good thing!


Day 84: Microsoft has invested in me, a co-op student, and has upgraded me to a Surface Pro 4. They might even let me keep it. I think this might be the single greatest day of my life.

Day 85: I couldn’t go more than a day without adding to the blog, just because of how productive I am on my new Surface!

Subscribe to my blog posts to keep updated on my journey and I’ll keep you guys posted on how the rest of my term goes!

P.S. I’m on the Xbox team, I’ll go into more detail next time.
