The Ops Team is a (sometimes) weekly show where (occasionally) 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, we're back down to 2 of the regulars, with Matt and Oguz bringing you up to speed with the latest IT news. It's a little chilly in the Ops Team studio this week - someone obviously forgot to pay the last heating bill, and whilst you can't quite see our breath, trust us, it was COLD! In the news, Matt brings us up to speed with a new, free, ebook and free Microsoft Virtual Academy course, along with some cool resources for storage, Hyper-V Scale and VMware integration. In between those two areas, Oguz shares news on a new Azure App Service with MySQL, some VSTS authentication enhancements, and rounds out with a plethora of MVA courses, all of course, FREE! :) Enjoy!
Here's all the links and info on the topics we covered, along with the time stamps to jump to specific points in the video.
