Let’s get together and chat about what Microsoft is doing to overhaul the Windows command-line experience in Windows 10, and how Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) allows you to run Windows and Linux tools and platforms (inc. .NET Core) simultaneously. On the same machine. Without VM’s!

Rich is a Senior Program Manager who returned to Microsoft in March 2016 to "Make Windows Command Line Great Again" (MWCLGA). Rich is so old he's worked on too many things to list, but highlights include the computerized weapon aiming systems, graphics accelerators, recruitment systems, UK Government Gateway, Windows Communication Foundation (nee "Indigo"), Windows CardSpace, and Visual Studio 2005-2010, HBO GO, Windows Subsystem for Linux, and Windows Console. Any jokes about grey hair/beard will be met with scorn!
Tara is a Program Manager at Microsoft working on the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). Previously, she worked on the V1 of new tools for SQL Server on Linux including SQL Operations Studio and the mssql-scripter CLI. Her passion for the command line and Linux has transferred over to her work on WSL. Fun fact: a lot of the Windows Console code is older than she is!
