Tip of the week: Take the Xamarin Challenge!

A quick reminder that you should be taking the Xamarin Challenge, and could win one of two Surface Studio PCs. I wrote some tips for getting through the first step.

Plus: You can actually get links to some Windows Store items.

Plus: Outlook.com Premium promotional pricing has been extended through June

Plus: Games with Gold, of course!

App pick of the week: Netflix

Netflix for Windows 10 picks up offline viewing. Finally.

Enterprise pick of the week: Run your Win 10 desktop virtually on Azure

There are lots of caveats and requirements, but Win 10 desktops can now run on Azure

Plus: O365 Enterprise K1 plan users get Teams, StaffHub. MS is taking aim at “frontline” workers, not just typical office workers.

Codename pick of the week: Sopris

Microsoft is working with microcontroller makers to try to help secure cheap IoT devices. The codename of this effort is “Project Sopris.” My guess as to why has to do with Colorado.

Beer pick of the week: KBS 2017

Speaking of spring events… the new batch of KBS is out. It’s big. It’s bourbonic. Thanks, Founders!

Audible pick of the week: Russia House

Russia House by John Le Carre
