The Ops Team #018 – “Bruised Banana”

The Ops Team is a weekly show where 4 Technical Evangelists specializing in IT Operations get together to give you the deets on their 4 areas of expertise: Microsoft Azure/Cloud, On-premises datacenter technologies, Enterprise Mobility / Windows and DevOps.

This week on The Ops Team, further reconstruction work results in a change in angle for the security camera, and with Simon still on vacation (we think!) it’s left to Matt, Oguz and David to bring you up to speed with the latest news. Oguz shares the details on using Bash on Windows, and, in an Ops Team first, delivers a live demo! Which fails. David brings us up to speed with the latest news on Visual Studio, including Visual Studio Code and TFS enhancements. Finally, Matt wraps up with a ‘hybrid’ combined on-prem and Azure section, covering some cool stuff for Hyper-V, PowerShell for Docker, Azure Stack, Azure VM Scale Sets and more!
