Open Source at Microsoft and Beyond

Open Source North

Last month I had a pleasure to attend Open Source North conference in Minneapolis, MN. It was a great event with over 500 attendees and speakers from all over across the United States. I had a pleasure to meet a lot of great people, and attend a few interesting talks. I also gave a talk “Open Source and Microsoft and Beyond” where I presented a bunch of Microsoft Open Source projects (ASP.NET Core, TypeScript, Xamarin, F#), gave an insight into Azure Cloud, and showed a few non-Microsoft OSS projects created or having contributions from Microsoft employees (lodash, xUnit, Moment.js, voiceCmdr, and more).
