TechNet Pod #1 - The TechDays Online One ft. DevOps


Say hello to the TechNet Pod! Our new monthly podcast will roundup everything that's been happening on Microsoft UK's technical channels, including TechNet UK, @MSDevUK and @TechNetUK.

So why a podcast, and why now? Recently we've been having a think about what ways we can better reach out to the audience of TechNet UK and the two Twitter channels. We want to be able to tailor our articles and event coverage specifically to the needs of developers and IT pros in the UK, and the podcast is a step in this direction! Your feedback will help shape future podcasts, so if there are topics you'd like to learn more about, do let us know.

You can listen to it on Soundcloud, through your favourite podcast client with a search or our RSS feed, or you can download the episode directly (128mb).

So, what's in store for episode one?
