Azure Fridays – A Powershell script to Download RSS Videos

Azure Fridays If you are like me then time is a very precious and limited commodity. Also we both love learning new things!

Mark Relph on Windows Development for .NET Rocks!

Over the past number of years, I’ve listened to quite a number of podcasts.

Audio Resources for the On-The-Go Developer

I admit it: I’m addicted to podcasts. Why? Because they allow me to multitask. For example, I can take Hugo (my dog) for a long walk while listening to some of my favourite podcasts on software development. It’s the best of both worlds; I get to exercise my brain and my body at the same…
