Career Profiles: Social Software Product Manager Intern

Social Software is commonly referred to as “Facebook for the enterprise.”  This past summer, I spent 14 weeks working for IBM in Westford, MA as a Social Software Product Manager Intern for IBM’s Lotus Quickr, an online team collaboration software that enables group members share content via document libraries, wikis, blogs, team calendars, and task lists.  I spent most of the summer building Quickr templates for two purposes.  First, the templates would provide proof of concept for clients and the sales team would use the templates to demo during sales presentations.  Second, they would be available for download as add-ons from the IBM website and/or shipped in future releases of Quickr.  At the risk of sounding corny, the templates would help customers get Quickr places started quicker.  Microsoft Sharepoint, one of Quickr’s biggest competitors, has similar templates available.

Look out for Code Camp 9 (04/05-06/08)

Code Camp

A Code Camp (in this context) is an event organized to either exhibit or learn from a code developed in a Microsoft .Net platform. The event consists of a series of sessions held at the Microsoft Offices in Waltham. Each session is on a different topic and you can attend one, two or any number of sessions as you wish, or even present a session, if you wish.

For a list of sessions for the upcoming Code Camp to be held on the 5th and 6th of April ’08, check out: http://thedevcommunity.org/Events/PresentationList.aspx?id=6. Try to get there for some sessions on XNA game development, Silverlight or LINQ. They should be pretty cool. You may also want to visit some community websites such as:
