Episode 163: myNewsWrap – Microsoft, GitHub and SAP

Welcome to this week's edition of myNewsWrap, news from the world of Microsoft, GitHub, SAP ... and the world in between. The focus of my newsletter is the application development and all things around that can improve our lives as developers.

First edition in 2024, so catching up with some news that happened in the last weeks during the winter break.

Let's dive into the news and explore what came up this week that can help us to build better solutions for our customers.
