How I setup our user group Twitch streaming for under $200

When I was in Redmond (March 2019) for the Microsoft MVP Summit, I was invited to be on Jeff Fritz's Twitch Stream where we discussed online and offline communities. One of my major takeaways from that discussion was to not restrict our tech communities to in-person only. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=va0HJzGftBk With that in mind, I decided to… Continue reading How I setup our user group Twitch streaming for under $200

I made the 2018 TechBeacon DevOps Top 100 list…

To say… Continue reading My first Microsoft MVP Summit 2018
