With more people working at home, Microsoft is launching "Learn TV," which will provide daily content for developers. Microsoft is calling it a "one-stop shop," stating that it's there to help people "learn and grow with live content from Microsoft Cloud Advocates." Learn TV will be made up of an aggregation of technical videos and content, including Microsoft's Channel 9 and live events and hackathons. You can check out the Microsoft Learn TV website now.

The content that already appeared on the website while it was in preview include Build 2020, "Take your first steps with Python," "Six Things to Love in Xamarin.Forms 4.6," and "Introducing Visual Studio Online." Microsoft states that new content will debut as part of Build and will continue on the platform following the conference.

Microsoft emphasizes that with in-person events and face-to-face engagements canceled due to the current global health crisis, more developers are looking for resources online. Microsoft's Learn TV should help developers "whether they are learning and advancing their skills or re-skilling," according to Microsoft.
