Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Get free IT training … From Google!?

Google has announced a new IT Support Professional Certificate that will help beginners start a new career in 8 to 12 months.

App pick of the week: PowerShell Core

Microsoft is making generally available PowerShell Core 6.0, a version of PowerShell built on .NET Core that runs not just on Windows, but also macOS and Linux.

Also: Object Desktop 2018

Also: InSpectre

Enterprise pick of the week: A great chart for comparing Skype for Business and Teams

It’s a complicated topic made easier by a fairly uncomplicated and freely downloadable chart from MS MVP Luca Vitali.

Codename pick of the week: Panther

I’m amazed to say I’d never heard of this, but Microsoft was working on replacing the classic DOS-based Windows with NT before Windows 95! It was called Panther, and Raymond Chen spills the details.

Beer pick of the week: Cloudwater NE DIPA Citra Mosaic

A New England double IPA from Old England! Lots of British brewers are doing American-style beers these days and doing them very well, like Cloudwater did with this one. (Thanks to Allister Frost for bringing me a can.)
