Composed of all the traditional things that make a show like his worth your time (deconstruction, innovation, etc.) coupled with the kind of engaging and insightful conversations you won’t find anywhere else.

Great way to learn & keep up with Azure DevOps

Host Jeffrey Palermo is himself a thought leader in the Microsoft and DevOps spaces. He's able to get guest that are either developing the tools we use or on the forefront of DevOps practices. There hasn't been an episode yet that didn't have some practical takeaways for me.
