Welcome to season 5 of the award-winning .NET Core Podcast! Check that link for proof.

Hello everyone and welcome to The .NET Core Podcast is a podcast where we reach into the core of the .NET technology stack and, with the help of the .NET community, present you with the information that you need in order to grok the many moving parts of one of the biggest cross-platform, multi-application frameworks on the planet.

I am your host, Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor. In this episode, I talked with Kirk Marple about unstructured data, his new product Unstruk Data, and why he chose to use .NET to build something which makes heavy use of machine learning techniques.

Along the way, Kirk shares a whole bunch of lessons and experiences from his career which goes all way back to 1994 when he started at Microsoft. He shares a number of stories and advice about things like building minimal viable products, entrepreneurism, ideas, and whether your product needs to be cross-cloud.
