Developers! Developers! Developers! What can today’s Microsoft offer you?

Microsoft hasn’t always been everyone’s friend. Recently though, you might have noticed the Borg doing some unusual things, such as hiring developers that don’t write code on the Microsoft stack, and, uh, buying GitHub. What are they up to? Is it another plot to frustrate the success of open source, or something more benign. Maybe they have something to offer developers in today’s world, to complement AWS and existing open source tools. In this not-super-technical-but-demo-heavy-talk-with-code for developers, Tom Morgan (disclaimer: a Microsoft MVP, but not a Microsoft employee) will attempt to convince you that today’s Microsoft is a very, very different company from the one that still lives on in many people’s prejudices, and that knowing more about what Microsoft is offering to developers could be beneficial to you.

PS: we promise no one will be assimilated.
