Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Stay (digitally) safe during the Coronavirus

Microsoft has some advice, especially about email

Plus: I finished the WPF version of .NETpad. You can build it for yourself if you’d like. (You need to be a Thurrott Premium member. Maybe this is a good time to support quality content online. Just saying.)

App pick of the week: DOOM 64 for Xbox One and PC

Forget the new DOOM game unless you like ice skating. The better game? DOOM 64! And it’s only $5!! You can get it on Xbox or on PC (Steam)

Plus: Google Podcasts for Android and now iOS

Enterprise pick of the week: New Microsoft 365 F1 plan

M365 F1 is going to become F3 and a new, cheaper and less fully featured F1 is coming. Yeah, it’s complicated.

Codename pick of the week: Coyote

Microsoft Research has been doing work on P#. Its evolution is codenamed Coyote. Coyote is  an open-source .NET framework that is for developers designing, implementing and testing code in ways that embrace non-determinism and asynchrony. It’s more than just pie in the sky: It’s being used by Azure Compute in Azure Batch and Blockchain. (Thanks to The Walking Cat for finding this.)

Beer pick of the week: Scratch Brewing Co. Lemon Balm Sour

Scratch Brewing is an Illinois farmhouse brewery that uses foraged ingredients to make beer. Think mushrooms, leaves, bark, flowers, etc. Lemon Balm Sour, a wild ale, is a fantastic lemony sour that was brewed without hops but instead with lemon balm, a mint-like plant, and lemongrass.
