19:00 - Welcome
19:10 - Skype: The startup revival by Miguel Caballero (Sr. Engineer @ Microsoft)

Abstract: We usually find lots of information about scaling from small startup to big corporations, but what about the reverse journey? When you are a big corporation and you want to get back the agility and speed you used to have. The Skype team recently went through that same process in a quest to find their roots. Miguel Caballero Pinto, Senior Software Developer at Skype, will tell us the key learnings from evolving their entire organization to become a startup again.

About Miguel: Miguel Caballero Pinto, originally from Malaga, has worked at Microsoft for the last 8 years in many different projects and roles, which gives him a broad vision of the giant corporation. He worked as developer evangelist in Microsoft Iberica, software engineer in test at Microsoft Office in Microsoft Ireland and software engineer at Visual Studio in Microsoft Corporation. Currently, he is working at Skype in the team responsible for customer and engagement growth.
