For episode 42, listeners might be hoping that we’d delve into the meaning of life, the universe, and everything… and if your universe consists of deploying and managing applications on Windows, that’s exactly what we’ll be doing! The panel sits down with Steven Murawski, site reliability engineer with the venerable Stack Exchange and Microsoft community MVP to discuss the goings on at Tech Ed last week, Microsoft’s recent open source offerings, new Azure features that are facing down Amazon, and with DSC and Server Core, why it seems Microsoft is really changing the way they develop their server products.
