.NET continues to evolve - but how did it get here? Join Richard Campbell on a tour of the history of .NET, Visual Studio and the related tools that have been helping developers produce millions of applications. So many forces shape how development tools are created, and Richard ties together the story of the hardware, software, market and political forces that have brought .NET to be an open-source, cross-platform development platform. The winding path of .NET has been influenced by many things along the way, and the future looks bright!
The .NET Multi-platform App UI (MAUI) has been released for a while now – how are things going? Join Carl and Richard as they chat with Maddy Montaquila and David Ortinau about getting MAUI shipped and watching how people use it. How effective is MAUI at letting developers build for multiple clients? What features are missing, and which features haven’t been used by most developers? Bring your questions and be part of a .NET Rocks Live at Swetugg!
