  1. Hi Mike,

    I’m a content developer in the Microsoft Learning and Readiness team. We’ve recently released a series of DevOps online courses as part of a DevOps credential, https://academy.microsoft.com/en-us/professional-program/, and are planning some updates and changes, was wondering if you’d be interested in reviewing some of the content and possibly being involved in some of that content/lab dev work?

    Sure let us know what you think,
