Our team is Intentional Exploration. The Intentional platform is an exciting new technology acquired by Microsoft in 2017. It is the basis for a number of new applications, the first of which, Whiteboard, is now in preview release and which will grow into a very general and powerful concept of Interactive Documents that are heterogeneous and have groupware, semantic encoding, and interactions built in. Intentional Exploration is a team led by Charles Simonyi of 15 people, eventually growing to 30, that works on the "XP Platform" which is substantial refactoring of the Intentional codebase with the goal of ever greater performance, functionality, and programmability.
