Windows Terminal 1.0 with Kayla Cinnamon

About Show #703

Windows Terminal 1.0 is shipped! Richard talks to Kayla Cinnamon about the open-source project that is Windows Terminal. The conversation starts with a bit of a history lesson on updating the Windows Command Prompt - and why it turned out to be a bad idea.

Kayla Cinnamon is the Program Manager for Windows Terminal and Cascadia Font at Microsoft. She graduated Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a Master of Science degree in Information Technology, concentrating in Human-Computer Interaction.
