Tip of the week: Learn to program

Microsoft has launched multiple videos series this week for aspiring developers.

App pick of the week: Microsoft Office 365

Whether they rename it or not, Office 365 remains Microsoft’s most vital offering on the client. And that’s true whether you’re on PC, Mac, mobile, or web, or whether you choose a consumer or business version.

Enterprise pick of the week: Where is Win Server 1909/19H2?

Insiders haven’t seen it, but it does exist and is coming “soon-ish” ™. This will be a refresh of Server 1903 plus the latest cumulative update.

Enterprise pick No. 2 of the week: Dynamics 365 Wave 2

October 1 is the kick-off of Wave 2 of Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 features and products. This week, we learned about several new apps and features coming as part of this wave (which we didn’t know about until now). New members of the “Insights” family, new Commerce and store offerings and more.

Beer pick of the week: Hermit Thrush Gin Barrel Saison

Do you like gin? If so, you might like this saison from Hermit Thrush which is made by aging the beer in gin barrels. Really unusual and very tasty. Plus only 6.5%.
