About Alex Barnett
I lead the developer relations team at Intuit (since Sept '08) responsible for Intuit Developer Network (IDN) and developer engagement for Intuit Partner Platform (IPP).
Previous to that I was VP, Developer Community at Bungee Labs after spending 5 years at Microsoft Corp in various positions (my last role there was as Community Program Manager for the Data Programmability team, Microsoft Corp, Redmond, WA...more on this at my old blog here). I moved to Redmond, WA in 2005 from Microsoft UK as International Program Manager for MSDN and TechNet for a year driving the globalization strategy for these two networks. In 2002 I joined Microsoft UK as Online Customer Experience Manager (in CRM and Online Marketing Team) and did that for a couple of years.
In 1996 I joined Bluewave, a London-based startup, and remained there for 7 years (an online marketing, web design and development agency) as Sales and Marketing Director and then COO. We succesfully completed the sale of Bluewave to Maersk Data (now part of IBM) and shortly after that I took the leap to Microsoft.
Before that I played professional cricket for 8 years (Middlesex and Lancashire). Somehow, I have a Wikipedia entry.
