Here's a "professional" bio, but you can learn more about my history.
Ivan R. Judson is a strategist, serving as a Principal Program Manager in the Skilling organization that provide Microsoft Learn to the world so they can learn how to use Microsoft technology to do more. He has been a program manager, engineer, and manager over his career, and he has provided technical leadership, strategic vision, and strong counsel throughout. He has built global communities, starting with the Access Grid at Argonne, more recently architecting Resistbot. He understands scale, people, and technology - combining these pieces is a unique skillset. Ivan has used this skillset across technology spaces: at Argonne National Laboratory he built high performance computing systems, large format projection displays, and advanced collaborative workspaces; at Montana State University he taught undergraduate and graduate Computer Science and created the Research Computing Group to consolidate, stabilize, and productionize compute and data management services for the $100M research enterprise; at Workiva (formerly Webfilings) in Bozeman, MT he established a new software development division, recruiting 40 of the top developers in the area and establishing five product teams. Ivan is also an expert in systems thinking and complex system design, earning his Doctorate for work in Resource Allocation Algorithms in Cognitive Wireless Networks.
