Today it's .NET Rocks episode 986, Enterprise SharePoint Development with Ted Pattison.
After the usual SharePoint jokes, a lot of them going around, Ted talk about the evolution and future of SharePoint. I've been working with SharePoint back and fourth but always feel like it a hassle when trying to customize it and I know I'm not alone. It sounds like the new app model finally get SharePoint to a place where we can develop towards it. However, the question is what happens to the on-prem solution with the push towards the cloud. A lot of large corporations still want and need to have on-prem solutions and it's important to not scare them.

Great show today, it's Windows Developer Show episode 157, Becoming An Outlier.
Among the regular great tips the guys have a talk with Cory House about his Pluralsight course "Becoming an Outlier: Reprogramming the Developer Mind".
This is actually to some extent what my goal with my "One hour a day" experiment is. His first point about commanding your time and creating habits is what I'm doing. When I'm doing something where I can listen to a podcast I do that. I learn while doing something that doesn't take a lot of brain power. Taking a walk, mowing the lawn, painting a wall.
Great show and I'll check out the Pluralsight course as well.
