I am super excited about Windows Subsystem for Linux. It is one of the coolest pieces of tech I’ve seen since I started using Docker.

There is much written about the changing roles of Development and Operations staff when organisations undergo agile/devops transformations. But what about the changing role of the Team Leader?

For programmers and software developers, the Internet forums provide a great place to exchange knowledge and seek answers to concrete coding conundrums. Alas, they are not always the source of accurate information.

If your distro does not have kernel updates, then I strongly suggest changing distros right now.
