Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

PowerPoint was the first presentation software designed for Macintosh and Windows, received the first venture capital investment ever made by Apple, and then became the first significant acquisition ever made by Microsoft, who set up a new Graphics Business Unit in Silicon Valley to develop it further. Now, twenty-five years later, PowerPoint is installed on over one billion computers worldwide.

In this book, Robert Gaskins (who invented the idea, managed its design and development, and then headed the new Microsoft group) tells the story of its first years, recounting the perils and disasters narrowly evaded as a startup, dissecting the complexities of being the first distant development group in Microsoft, and explaining decisions and insights that enabled PowerPoint to become a lasting success well beyond its original business uses.

Biographie de l'auteur

Robert Gaskins invented PowerPoint, managed its design and development as a startup for three years, and then headed the new Microsoft PowerPoint business unit in Silicon Valley for another five years. He has written this book to commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary of PowerPoint.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A chronicle of the thinking and implementation that created a immensely dominant application. 19 décembre 2012
Par buyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
"Sweating Bullets" is the true story of how to get a "killer application" to the market first, with breakthrough capabilities, then prosper in the world's foremost OS and application corporation, and stay at the top for decades. No small task.

Robert Gaskins eloquently describes his path from his early vision, to building a team, through being acquired by Microsoft to make PowerPoint the dominant presentation platform worldwide.

At a time when some of the world was still bound to command line interfaces and graphics capabilities in computers were limited, Bob Gaskins saw the demand and set about creating the presentation tool that is the world standard even twenty years later.

"Sweating Bullets" also describes the alliance with Genigraphics which was key to early successes of both firms and which accomplished the only direct embedding of an external service in a Microsoft application. The entrepreneurs of Genigraphics, like Bob's PowerPoint team, were inventors and pioneers in so much of what is still the preeminent world-wide presentation platform.

More than a dairy, Bob recounts the thought processes that guided the development and marketing of the product, and that way of thinking is as potent today as it was then.

Spanning technology, negotiation, marketing, cultures and technological convergence, this book is essential reading for any technology entrepreneur, developer or marketer who must navigate creating and growing new technologies for new and changing markets.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inventing PowerPoint 25 juin 2012
Par C. Michael - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an excellent read on the development of one of the world's best known software from the developer himself. Mr. Gaskins kept a daily journal of the thousands of decisions that went into the development of PowerPoint which has sold a billion copies and whose name is now a generic verb around the world.
Software development isn't easy, but Gaskins gives us a well-written insider's view of the early days of PCs, Silicon Valley, and Microsoft.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 It is well written and the author clearly intelligent. 12 mai 2017

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Read 28 août 2012
Par ann rosenberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A fascinating chronicle of the development of PowerPoint but also provides insights into the development of the PC/MAC and even of Silicon Valley. Gaskins captured day to day developments over the period in his notes which now form the detailed, factual base for his narrative.

It could also easily serve as a business school case or even a guide for starters-up.

A visit to the author's website is well worthwhile.
