Learn with Visual Studio Remote Office Hours
A new live broadcast directly from the Visual Studio team (my garage to be exact) is now streaming near you every Thursday morning. It’s about everything Visual Studio and you get rare insights into the inner workings of features, processes, and the people that make it all happen. This is like being in the machine room and you get to see and hear it all.
One of the ideas with the show is to provide some help, tips and tricks for working from home. That’s why the first episode is about acclimating to working from home with guest and long-time remote worker Scott Hanselman.
The style is conversational, light and casual. This is a show by developers for developers and we’re not trying to sell anything to anyone. You get to hear the stories that are rarely told outside the corridors of building 18 on the Microsoft campus in Redmond. The inside scoop if you will. And you get to ask questions too!!
Get your questions answered
Instead of it just being us talking, you can actively participate in the live Q&A that is part of the broadcast. It could be questions about the topic we’re discussing or something completely different. If it’s related to Visual Studio, we will probably be able to answer them.
If you can’t watch it live, you can ask your questions in the comments of the recording on YouTube.
Live or on YouTube
There are two ways to watch. You can either see it live as it is being recorded, or you can watch it afterwards on the Visual Studio YouTube channel.
To watch live, the @visualstudio Twitter account will announce every episode about an hour before we go live with a link to join. We try to record every Thursday morning at 9:00am, but we may move it in case of holidays, vacation etc.
At the time of writing this blog post, we’ve recorded 6 episodes with more planned for the future. Here’s what we got so far:
