Michal Bar, Senior Program Manager, Microsoft Access and Armen Stein, President, J Street Technology and Access MVP

Double Feature: "New Access Charts" and "Start Your Project Right"

Michal Bar, Senior Program Manager, Microsoft Access and Armen Stein, President, J Street Technology and Access MVP

Join us at the brand new (and very cool) Microsoft Technology Center (MTC) Envisioning Center for a special evening of Access information from two industry leaders!

Access PM Michal Bar be visiting us from Redmond to present the new charting capabilities in Access. She will also hold an Access developer round-table before the meeting (contact if you'd like to participate).

Following Michal's presentation, J Street Technology President and Access MVP Armen Stein will present how to successfully manage an Access project.

"Congratulations! You’re starting a new custom development project. But the way a project starts is a good predictor of how it will finish. To make everything proceed smoothly and complete successfully, it’s important to develop a great project plan. You must understand and document your customer’s needs, project scope, and perhaps most importantly, the cost estimates! Armen will discuss how J Street plans Access and web projects from hundreds of hours to thousands, and he’ll leave you with samples and tools that you can use."

Michal Bar is a Senior Program Manager in Microsoft and the product lead and champion for Access since 2014. Prior to Microsoft, Michal spent 10 years at Intel’s mobile division, mainly focused on SQL based solutions for microprocessors validation processes. She has served as a press non-commissioned officer in the IDF, and holds a B.Sc. in Information Systems engineering from the Technion institute of Technology in Israel. She feels honored to be part of the Access team, with the opportunity to make an impact on the product and millions of engaged customers all over the world.
