Block time to continue learning. No excuses.
Learning requires time and practice. Reading tweets, blogs, seeing videos, keep us aware of the changes and updates, but we really learn and internalize when we get hands on and invest some time practicing. Sometimes we do it at work, sometimes we don’t.
All of us have a topic that we want to explore, which one is it for you? A mobile app development technology? Git? Application performance monitoring? Agile? You name it.
You recently became a new Visual Studio Online account owner - joshdill.visualstudio.com
, you have access to a whole set of development services on the cloud to support (for free) your development projects and experiments. Create or migrate a simple team project and learn how to configure continuous integration, enable Application Insights to explore application performance monitoring, or create few work items and see how to use the agile tooling.
So, do you really want to learn something new?
