Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Wait

I know you want Windows 10 version 2004. Just wait if your hardware isn’t ready. Seriously.

App pick of the week: Any browser not named Chrome

Edge, Brave, Opera, Vivaldi, Firefox, Safari are all better choices.

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft bot tools you can use

Microsoft is adding more bot tools to its stable for developers and non-developers, including a tool for building Alexa stills using the MS Bot Framework.

Codename pick of the week: Bicep

Microsoft has started developing a new ARM desired-state language, codenamed as “Bicep.” ARM as in Azure Resource Manager. Thanks to Aidan Finn for the link from the Build content about this.

Beer pick of the week: SlackTide Brewing Angry Osprey IPA

I haven’t had this beer, but I chose it in honor of Slack’s Stuart Butterfield, who continues to act like an angry osprey when it comes to Teams. It sounds like a good one – a west coast IPA with Citra and Centennial.
