Do you know about the phony feeling when being a developer? That feeling that you actually don’t know anything and that you’re only pretending? Scott Hanselman wrote a post on this ’Exploring imposter syndrome in technology’ and apparently the feeling is not uncommon.
And I suffer from it. Especially after visiting Build! There are so many great things discussed and new features released that I left Build with the feeling that I should really study up on some stuff.
So without further ado!
My list of things do after Build
- Run Windows 10 on a Raspberry Pi and deploy a universal app to it
- Create and deploy an ASP.NET 5 website (preferably in Visual Studio Code!) to a Docker container running on Azure
- Setup continuous delivery for a website to Linux with the new Release Management Service
- Create a Roslyn analyzer
- Create a Visual Studio Online extension
- Run a Build vNext agent on Linux and a Mac
- Convert a Win32, Web, Android and iOS app to a Universal Windows app
- Learn (the basics of) Azure Machine Learning
- Learn the basics of Unity to prepare for Hololens
- Create an Outlook extension using the new Office Graph
- Create an Azure dev/test lab based on Azure Resource Manager
And finally: Get a Hololens! But that one is going have to wait a bit. I think after doing all those things I’m a little bit less of a phony.
What is on your todo list? Anything I’ve missed or that you would love to learn? Please leave a comment!
