May 6, 2019

This week is a special solo-edition episode with your host, Jeffrey Palermo! Recently, Jeffrey published his fourth book, .NET DevOps for Azure, on April 26th, 2019. This book has been a long-time coming for Jeffrey and his hopes for it are to address some really big issues in the current industry.


Almost fifteen years ago, Jeffrey gained a passion for helping developers succeed, for making the complex simple, and for finding rules of thumb that would work for 80% of teams and situations out there. With too many options in the software world and too many answers of “it depends,” the industry has been starved for the ability to do something “by the book.” .NET DevOps for Azure seeks to provide that text where a .Net developer can say: “I’m doing DevOps with .NET and Azure by the book.”


If you are a .NET developer or a Microsoft shop using .NET Core or SQL Server and you’re looking ahead to Azure, then this book is for you.


Join Jeffrey this episode to further explore the topics in his upcoming book and to learn more!
