Microsoft are spending quite a large amount of time and energy confusing everyone around whats in and what's not in the next few years. In this session Scott will walk you through some of the announcements and show in detail how it affects developers with examples of how to reuse the current skills/technology you have with whats vNext. He'll also give you some internal insights on how to navigate the next few years of technology roadmap confusion!
