The Cloud Skills Show Episode 2: Languages & Frameworks

adamj89 profile image Adam Jackson Updated on ・2 min read

The Cloud Skills Show is a new weekly livestream, brought to you by the folks at Microsoft Developer UK. Each week, we'll feature guests from the UK and around the world to talk about the cloud skills that Developers and IT Professionals can use to develop their career (or to start a career in tech).

In Episode 2, we’re looking at programming languages and frameworks in more detail. How should folks get started with a new language and what can they do with Microsoft Cloud if they’re already familiar with one.**

This week, Adam Jackson was joined by:

Guest Topic
Emily Clarke Microsoft Developer UK Docs & Learn Resources
Jessica White Microsoft MVP and DDD East Midlands Organiser .NET
Pete Gallagher Microsoft MVP and Pluralsight Author IoT
Rory Preddy Microsoft Cloud Advocate for Java VS Codespaces
