It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Yes I'm talking about Microsoft BUILD 2019.
I've never been prouder to be a .NET developer using the Microsoft stack and the tools available. It's a promising future ahead with the announcement of .NET 5 building on the solid foundation that .NET Core has provided.
There's great tools coming like the newest online code editor, (which I'm sure will get a better name than Visual Studio Online because it's just confusing) which takes the huge momentum behind Visual Studio Code and enable quick edits in the browser. I'll be interested to see where this goes as I'm often on the bus home thinking of little things I'd like to do or review a pull request in more detail.
Microsoft have changed so much in the last 10 years, embracing a plethora of platforms, languages and ideas.
Having completed the Pluralsight Python path I wanted to get the Scrum Framework one done this week and succeeded.
To get fully completed I went through the “Product Owner Fundamentals - Plotting the Product Owner's Career Path” by Jeremy Jarrell and then Big Scrum by David Starr.
I now need to go through the Skills IQ tests for both Python and Scrum. I may well try and do a separate post to highlight my thoughts on these.
Each week I'll post a few links that I've found the most interesting from technology blogs, Reddit and other parts of the Internet.
As a bonus make sure you watch Microsoft's launch video for the New Terminal. It's very Apple...
