Course Overview
Hello I'm Jason Helmick, an author with Pluralsight, and welcome to Play by Play. Play by Play is a series where we get to sit down with top technologists in an unscripted and often unrehearsed conversation. Now I'm here in Redmond, Washington on the very steps of Microsoft HQ to sit down with the technical elite of Microsoft to bring you both an early and advanced view of technologies that you will be working with every day and then showing you directions that you need to get started on as you start moving forward. Now in this course, it's with Andrew Mason and you may have seen a previous Play by Play where we talked about Nano Server. This is for the Devs and the application platform under Windows Server 2016. Now if you're building applications and you want them to run you need to know how to do it and Microsoft has worked really hard to make this easy for you. Whether it's going to be physical server based, it's going to be virtualized, or in containers, we're going to show you the ins and outs of how to do this. You don't want to miss this. In fact, there's plenty of links to grab even more information to make your development life easy on this. Microsoft spent plenty of time on this so join Andrew and I on how to get this done.
