@carlfranklin then thought. Yikes, I hope its legal and he'd be cool with me doing that.@carlfranklin was hoping you'd say that. I played it to a webcamp today ;) I got 4 emails asking about it so did 5mins about it during talk@jaffathecake gifs don't have audio though.@carlfranklin I'd like to use it at dev events as a background whilst people work on labs. Is this a legal and ok thing for me to do or not?@carlfranklin I really like mtcb. Excellent idea and surprisingly effective.@Gryffskin haha yes@thebeebs favourite part of #azure webdev camp today - origami slide transitions

@ICooper @edward1421 @shanselman looks good. FYI, I think that first line to the intro should be "ahead if the curve", rather than curb.

As for upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 10. I think you might be surprised by how easy this becomes.@mikesherov but you can upgrade the OS for free to windows 10 from 7. XP is a minority.When I grow up I want to be just like @davidfowl *checks his SO profile* damn... I'm already 4 years older than him.The brilliant @thebeebs has agreed to come and see @SmartDevsUg on May 11th for a Lap Around Roslyn. http://t.co/AqooExrt0C

In your face FXCop: [SuppressMessage("Microsoft.Design", "CA1034:NestedTypesShouldNotBeVisible", Justification = "shipped already")]E.G: // An unusually long string causes pathologically slow Regex back-tracking.The comments in MSBuild are really excellent.

@rwj_dk ouch.@rwj_dk you can Lync to Skype, thats what I'm looking forward to. Hate having to run both.@alexhorre I get the feeling they'd rather you used the website on desktop. Apps are lacking on all platforms.Wonderful marketing email from Islabikes. Sending me a message telling me how to set up my sons bike for spring.First 20 mins of this video gives a great overview of how the Windows 10 app platform came about: http://t.co/p4kS4UIrMNAn interesting event at Google on the 23rd: http://t.co/WPcqUE4grZ but of course, I want you to come to my event: https://t.co/XrsQ6kZVcg

@bertcraven bravo.That took me ages to get that.Been an evangelist for 5 years... I still have trouble spelling it.@shaundunne @jonginn we have 10 different types of cable we need 1. Here is the 1 cable you need *2 years later* We have 11 types of cable.@jonginn @shaundunne yeah I take your point.@shaundunne wouldn't be a huge surprise is it did. But the surface is trying to be thin.@shaundunne I'm not sure that pixel makes any sense at all. What's the point having a USB C on a device that isn't trying to be thin.

Then as I composer this tweet, I get payment confirmation.@ChristosMatskas fluff at front of house, is covering engineers working tirelessly at back of house to get ready for build.
Interesting reading about the Windows 10 app platform, that only just got around to reading. http://t.co/w6kuTFEEMP@rem @codepo8 the team building it chose it. The Visual Studio team and the typescript team both have relationships with angular.
@sforth @RyanONeill1970 @SmartDevsUg I'm sorry I had to cancel. Family are all poorly.If I have a c# 4.5 class lib project. What's the cleanest way to get that running on .net core whilst retaining a 4.5 lib.
I love the null checking in C# 6: itemContents.Result.SingleOrDefault()?.Content ?? String.Empty;
