Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Find and Watch Every Ignite 2019 Session

Microsoft has created a central repository for all of the keynote and session videos it recorded at its recent Ignite 2019 conference.

App pick of the week: Brave

This new Chromium-based web browser is faster and lighter than the new Edge, blocks ads by default, and it blocks more trackers than even Safari and Firefox. But there some issues, of course.

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft Endpoint Manager

ConfigMgr plus Intune plus some other stuff = Endpoint Manager. This is good news for IT pros who have worried MS was about to kill off ConfigMgr because “cloud.”

Developer pick of the week: GitHub for mobile

GitHub has a mobile app now for iOS and coming soon for Android. This is for light development changes that don’t require access to a full IDE.

Beer pick of the week: Troegs Troegenator

It’s doppelbock season! (Not just pumpkin beer season.) And Troegs in Hershey, Penn. Makes a very nice one called Troegenator. It’s a strong, malty and somewhat heavy lager – perfect for cooler days/nights. But not lightweight! This one is 8.2%.
