Synopsis: My road to Microsoft is a chronicle of a young woman rise as an engineer in the male-dominated field of technology and how her concept became Microsoft Expedia, the first successful Internet travel site.
Woven throughout this memoir is her personal story of coming out as a lesbian and sharing her life for 20 years with her partner.
The book starts in Brazil covering the struggle of becoming an engineer despite society’s limited ideas about what girls could achieve. Hitting the glass ceiling at age 23, she immigrates to America, works as a cleaning woman to survive until obtaining papers to work as an engineer.
Eventually her idea became the nucleus of Expedia when her disillusion with Microsoft makes her leave in 1998, as a millionaire.
From the Publisher: This memoir, is written in the fast-paced style of a novel, and will appeal to many different readers: those interested in Microsoft and other major technology companies; anyone interested in software development and Internet technology; women and girls wanting to learn about succeeding in the traditionally male field of computers; immigrants who want to succeed in America; and gays and lesbians looking for role models.
