Happy New Year!
Yeah, yeah I know - January is almost over already. You aren’t tired and letting up on your resolutions yet are you? I know sometimes when I start a new year with a plan to make lots of changes and to be focused on a new year full of goals that really interest me … I start to run out of gas around the end of week 3.
Well it is now the beginning of week 4 - time to get back to it! Reread you goals and for those goals that have to do with keeping up to date and learning more about Azure - here are some resources for you that I just recently discovered.
We have a “pandemic puppy”, whose name is Duncan (he is the one in the photo above) and I now have a reason to take a drive and go on a walk every morning. The drive is key - about 30 minutes each way - it gives me around 1 hour a day when I can easily listen to podcasts or audiobooks.
Here are the Azure podcasts I’m currently listening to:
Hosted by: Cynthia Kreng @cynthiaKrenG, Kendall Roden @KendallRoden, Cale Teeter @CaleTeeter, Evan Basalik @EvanBasaliK, Russell Young @youngr6 & Sujit D’Mello (couldn’t find on twitter)
Azure for Executives
Hosted by: David Star @ElegantCoder
I’m probably one of the last people in the tech industry to have just started listening to podcasts and am curious - do you have any favorite Azure podcasts?
Last week I also discovered two new Azure “news sites” I hadn’t come across before that I’m going to start looking at on a regular basis:
This month I’m experimenting with using daily learning topics, where I’ll spend any spare time listening, reading, etc. to content on a singular topic - one of which is Azure. For example I’ll start the day listening to Azure podcasts during our commute to the beach/woods for a walk and back, then later on I’ll check out any Azure news and maybe watch a YouTube video or just read Azure related content. So far this daily topic experiment is working pretty well to help me slowly get up to date in several topics … I’ll keep you posted on how this experiment goes.
Do you have any tips on keeping up to date on Azure related topics?
