Brandon Watson Departs From Microsoft for Amazon

“My name is Brandon Watson, and I am currently responsible for the Developer Experience team for Windows Phone 7. That means I work on developer marketing, our developer platform products, and have a real focus/passion on new opportunities, specifically around developer enablement and mobile”

That was his role and he was great at it. A nice guy and really led at making a name for himself and his company and leading by example.

According to ZDNet:

It’s not just any job at Amazon, either. Watson is going to be the Director of the Kindle Cross Platform team. There he will be working on the product development roadmap for Kindle apps across all first- and third-party platforms worldwide, including the Windows Phone app and the Windows 8 app.

And this is why I thought it was a bad idea that he was using a Kindle two months ago…it infected his mind!

We wish him the best of luck.
