Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Improve the Apps Experience in Your Phone

It’s going to get a lot better in the future, but you can make a small change now to ease some of the pain.

App pick of the week: GitHub

I’ve been using GitHub to host Windows 10 Field Guide for years. But now I’m using it to host four different versions of .NETpad, my Notepad clone. And I’ll be making them available to the public soon.

Related: Visual Studio Codespaces, we hardly knew you. Goodbye and welcome our new codespace overlords: GitHub Codespaces.

Enterprise pick of the week: Fluid Framework is now officially open sourced

Microsoft said they’d be doing this back in May at Build. As of this week, it’s officially happening and developers are now welcome.

Codename pick of the week: Lots of new Surface codenames

The Walking Cat is back after losing one of his 9 lives. And he brings gifts of lots of Surface codenames. We are finding out what a few of them are:  Zeta (Duo 2 – thanks Zac Bowden); Olympus is 85-inch Surface Hub 2S (thanks Brad Sams); Epsilon was Duo 1.

Beer pick of the week: 3 Floyds Zombie Dust

You don’t have to go to Muncie, Indiana anymore to get one of the nicest pale ales around. 3 Floyds Zombie Dust is now in NYC and it seems their distribution of a number of their signature beers is expanding. A nicely hopped 6.2 percent pale ale that’s worth seeking out ahead of the zombie apocalypse!

    FYI, I purchased my Xbox One X through Microsoft's 0% financing offer through Dell Financial. I had to go to the physical Microsoft Store to get that deal.

    It was $33/mo. for 24 months. With Gamepass $35/mo for the Series X is a better deal.
