About me

My name is Clemens Schotte. I’m a Sr. Program Manager @Microsoft in the Maps & Geospatial Product Group, an Azure Maps Advocate, a developer, and a dedicated and enthusiastic storyteller with a passion for technology and social interaction. I blog about technology, gadgets, code, the web, space science and everything that interests me. I love to teach, motivate, and entertain people with technical details. I’m knowledgeable about Microsoft and Open Source technology. I like to engage with people to exchange ideas and experiences. I’m spontaneous, flexible, and I love the constant flow of innovation and new possibilities.

After graduating in 2002 from The Hague University, I started working as a software developer and created websites and web-related applications using PHP and C#. In 2007 I started working for Microsoft as Dev Consultant, and from 2013 to 2017, I was an Technical Evangelist. After ten years of working for Microsoft, I joined Dropbox as Solutions Architect. In 2019 I rejoined Microsoft, currently working as a Sr. Program Manager in the Maps & Geospatial Product Group, where I work with customers and developers on Microsoft’s Maps & Geospatial services.
