Podcast 234: We’re doing it live!

We dig deep into .Net and prepare a live episode to raise funds for those impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

On this week’s episode, we chat Jeff Fritz and Claire Novotny, both of whom serve as PM’s on Microsoft’s .Net team. We chat about how a foundation helps open source software communities to grow and what it’s like to be a live coder on Twitch.

In addition to her role as PM’s on Microsoft’s .NEt team, Claire is an Executive Director of the .NET Foundation. Jeff, meanwhile, is a Twitch Partner, technical educator and founder of @theLiveCoders. He can be found streaming live coding projects and challenges as CsharpFritz on Twitch. 

Both have been working with our own Sara Chipps to organize today’s DevAroundTheSun event in order to raise money for those impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

In addition to this episode, you can tune in this morning at 9am Eastern Standard Time to catch a live episode of the Stack Overflow podcast on Twitch, where we’ll be highlighting some of the fascinating talks and great speakers happing at DevAroundTheSun, and generally having a few laughs talking about software, tech, and life.
