  • How does browser link update CSS when it’s been pre-compiled by SASS or Less
  • Windows Azure CDN’s
  • Staging and Deployment in Azure
  • Storage, VM’s and pricing in Azure
  • When is an extra small instance coming in Azure
  • Open source and the web; frameworks that will become dominant in the future
  • Integration between Visual Studio and TFS and other open source solutions
  • The future of Knockout

Scott takes a funny, interactive and entertaining approach to presenting in this video. It’s a great watch for anyone who’s into Microsoft technologies and wants to hear from someone who has deep and thoughtful insights in the future of Microsoft and the development world.
