A lot has changed at Microsoft. Azure has 1000 Linux VMs to choose from, there’s RESTful APIs abound, and more OSS than ever before. What are Microsoft’s web folks thinking and how are they developing software today? Is is a good thing?

Scott Hanselman will cover:

  • Azure’s OSS node-based CLI
  • ASP.NET for non-Windows plaforms
  • How we use Git and OSS in our work
  • What’s OSS, what’s not, why, and when will it all be OSS
