Jacqueline Widdis

Product Manager, Visual Studio Subscriptions

Jacqueline joined Microsoft as a Release Manager in April 2019 and has since moved to the Visual Studio Subscriptions team as a Product Manager with projects that span into VisualStudio.com and VS Marketplace. Coming from an educational background in networking and server administration, the move into the developer space has been an exercise in continuous learning. Because of the switch in context, she has taken on the new challenge of documenting the journey in learning the Visual Studio family of products in hopes of reaching others interested in joining her in the process. Outside of product management, she is passionate about mentorship with the hope of meeting people wherever they may be in personal development. She looks forward to learning more about Visual Studio enthusiasts and is open to connections on LinkedIn.
