Sara Ford is the Program Manager for CodePlex, Microsoft’s open source project hosting site.
Sara joined Microsoft in 2001 as a software tester on the Visual Studio Core team. After 3 versions of Visual Studio, she left software testing to work on the Visual Studio Power Toys. The power toys were among the first projects on CodePlex when the site launched in 2006. Sara joined the CodePlex team shortly afterwards.
Sara’s life-long goal is to become a 97-year-old weightlifter, so she can be featured on the local news.
