Tips and picks

Tip of the week: History in an Hour

Audible has a neat set of short and inexpensive audiobooks in its History in an Hour series. And they’re on sale right now for just ~$1.50 each.

App pick of the week: Sticky notes for mobile … sort of

Yes, Sticky Notes is coming to mobile. But in the meantime, you can try this.

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft Learn: Self-paced free training for a variety of MS products

Azure, Dynamics Power BI and more learning modules are coming.

You start for free. Then transition to paid training programs to gain certifications. Learn comes with tutorials, interactive coding and more.

Buzzword pick of the week: “Partner”

Partner used to mean a reseller partner, an OEM or an ISV in Microsoft parlance. Increasingly, MS is using it to refer to customers (as it did recently with Volkswagen and Grab). Don’t be fooled. Even if MS is investing in these companies, they are customers and the announcements are customer wins.

Beer pick of the week: Threes Instant Gratification

I talk up a lot of NYC breweries on this show. I don’t think I’ve picked one from Threes Brewing in Brooklyn before, though. They make some excellent IPAs and also sours – including Instant Gratification, a sour with prickly pear and lychee flavors.

We’re in Dublin next week!

Paul and MJF will be keynoting the Microwarehouse Cloud Camp in Dublin. We will be doing Windows Weekly live from Dublin, too, at our same bat time and schedule. So 2 p.m ET next week, tune in and we’ll be speaking Gaelic. (We’ll be doing a meetup too after the show. Details to come!)
