Tips and picks

Tip of the week: It’s time to participate

The problem with the Windows Insider Program is that there aren’t enough people making their voices be heard. If you are about Windows 10, it’s time to participate.

App pick of the week: Affinity Photo

Affinity Photo is an inexpensive alternative to Adobe Photoshop Elements and it’s on a half-off sale right now, which makes it even less expensive at $25. Worried about licensing? Get it from the Microsoft Store!

Enterprise pick of the week: Behind the scenes with Azure

Microsoft has had capacity issues with Azure for months (even before the COVID-19 pandemic hit). Officials have shared a bit about how they were addressing them. But this week, they went public with a lot more specifics and some interesting stats on how they’re building up Azure and Teams.

Enterprise pick of the week No. 2: New ML courses, scholarships

Microsoft and Udacity are partnering to make machine learning courses more available. You can apply for a chance to earn one of 300 scholarships as part of the ML Scholarship Program for Microsoft Azure (the Nanodegree Program for more advanced users). Or you can check out the free course on Azure ML (the “start free” course for true beginners).

Beer pick of the week: Fullsteam Juneteenth Unfiltered Pilsner

Durham, N.C.-based Fullsteam Brewing has a German-style unfiltered pilsner ready for this week’s Juneteenth celebration. Called “Juneteenth,” this pilsner uses all NC grain and the proceeds go to the Hayti Heritage Center and Southern Coalition for Social Justice.
