ICYMI (In case you missed it); two weeks in the past was Microsoft’s Construct occasion! The yearly occasion is an opportunity for builders to study new issues which can be occurring in know-how. The rationale I like listening to all these occasions is as a result of it will get you excited concerning the happenings within the business.
One of many talks that stood out to me was on the challenges that fashionable builders face like needing to maneuver from idea, to code, to cloud seamlessly.

Azure Arc permits you to deploy wherever with out the necessity to should study Kubernetes and have a bunch of overhead. The mixing with Github Actions and different workflows goes to be a time saver forsure!
I extremely advocate watching this session when you’ve got the time!
