In today’s ‘solocast,’ Jeffrey is taking a look at the virtual Microsoft Ignite 2020 conference that was held on September 22nd-24th.
At last year’s conference, Jeffrey was fortunate enough to be a part of their community reporter team. At this year’s conference, he was one of five table-talk facilitators on a panel titled, “Why we’re excited to be a developer right now!” (If you’re interested in viewing this panel, a replay is available in the show notes!)
In this episode, Jeffrey highlights some of the important announcements from this year’s Microsoft Ignite, shares his insights on the developer-focused topics that were discussed, and takes listeners through the “Book of News” of everything that happened at the conference. If you’re shipping software with Microsoft technologies, you’re going to want to stay tuned in!
