    Over the next 3 years... it will happen. Docker support, Linux support, and a service that delivers 3M requests per second will be hard to compete with

    I kind of hope you're wrong lol but that's just because I love Linux and I find it hilarious that even Microsoft runs on Linux servers. We run windows domain controllers, DNS, DHCP and AD on my network but all the web servers are LAMP because that's what our dev wanted.
    Jeff Fritz
    @csharpfritz_twitter
    Sure.. if LAMP makes folks happy, then more power to them. Yes, lots of Microsoft stuff now runs on Linux, with even SQL server coming in the year ahead
    Microsoft is just making the tools available where developers want to work.
    If your security team wanted to use AD to authenticate those web servers, your dev friend is out of luck

    I'll be more qualified to make a decision on it by the time I finish school I know I hated doing java on Microsoft but that was years ago and I'm more familiar with the networking side of things at the moment. I'd rather deal with a Microsoft domain controller any day, they make really great server OS's it's just the clients that are god awful

    its a new Microsoft - and they're working on changing a lot of that perception. more customer-driven than I've seen them in years
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    this is true but a great way to change that perception is to start building stuff that doesn't suck isn't deceptive and doesn't try to ship all your data off to marketing silos.

    Welcome to the group! I leave the house for one hour and I miss the party!
    Jeff Fritz
    @csharpfritz_twitter
    That's a little rough... but I think I understand your concern
    Hey @Lilyheart - I'm looking forward to connecting more at a group meeting, but I'm going to be traveling and have meetings scheduled during the next two weeks
    I'm going to try to get to the Node event.. but will be just back in town the night before.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    Do you get to travel for your web dev job Jeff?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Just point your browser to chat.montcode.com and you’ll be good to go! Great thing about those is you can be ANYWHERE! WHEEEEE (I may have had an ICEEE with dinner… SUGAR)

    :smile: -- I don't build web sites for my full-time job any more.
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    lmao lily are you trying to give the illusion that you aren't always hyper?
    What do you do?
    Jeff Fritz
    @csharpfritz_twitter
    I'm trying to phrase it properly...
    I live in East Norriton...
    and I help lead Microsoft's .NET development teams
    ... so there's that...
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Actually I am not. I am super cranky and a by the books secretary trying to break my mold. (truth nuggets)
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    lol you always seem so upbeat when you're here

    @csharpfritz_twitter
    I spent 13 years in web development from Y2k, and got involved with the .NET user groups -- folks noticed me and now I build web applications with .NET to help train folks with .NET
    Starbucks is my current poison.. I can't get enough espresso shots
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Oh two of us live in East Norriton, now three!!! We could always carpool to eagleville..
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    sounds interesting, if you're ever in Glenside maybe we can meet up at the coffee shop there, they're independently roasted.
    Jeff Fritz
    @csharpfritz_twitter
    ... but, I'm still very interested in learning the other dev stacks and sharing what the .NET stack offers
    but I plan to lurk more than drive conversations
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    I'm still pretty crunchy, I'll learn anything I can especially if it means I can get a job making enough to support my wife and start a family
    Jeff Fritz
    @csharpfritz_twitter
    THAT is what this is all about...
    Well said - do what you need for a good gig and keep it or have better options
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    yea I kept this job for 8yrs I got it just after the bottom fell out of the economy it's time to move on
    Jeff Fritz
    @csharpfritz_twitter
    I watched the video posted here, and saw the recommendations for editors -- Atom is nice, and now I've gotta ask since I help build it, have you tried either Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio Community?
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    @csharpfritz_twitter I'm always on look out for new tools. It's great to have options, so sharing the .net stack will be appreciated
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Not for a few years. It’s on my list to try but I’ve been to focused on other learnin's
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    heard of it but never did anything with it, pretty much only just discovered that there's a form of coding I enjoy
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    I'm an avid fan of Atom and github in general, but never tried visual studio
    Jeff Fritz
    @csharpfritz_twitter
    VS Code is built on the same framework as Atom - so it works on Mac and Linux too
    If the group is interested, I'd be happy to give a tour through Visual Studio Code and / or Visual Studio Community
    ... both tools are free (as in beer) and VS Code is open source
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    That would be awesome! I’ll connect with you about it later.
    Jeff Fritz
    @csharpfritz_twitter
    Sure.. I'm in the FB group and you can email me at: jeff@jeffreyfritz.com

    @lantech19446
    sounds great, did you go to PW jeff?
    Jeff Fritz
    @csharpfritz_twitter
    no.. I was a Methacton grad - class of '94
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    o ok was curious because I'm originally from Flourtown so a lot of the people where you live now went to PW and I was in school with a joe fritz
    Jeff Fritz
    @csharpfritz_twitter
    not my branch of the family tree... My father, his father, and I are the only men in our Fritz family
    Jonathan Herman
    @lantech19446
    o ok
    Jeff Fritz
    @csharpfritz_twitter
    Is the group working on strictly HTML, JavaScript, and CSS or have we started looking at SCSS, LESS, and TypeScript?
