Microsoft hasn't made it easy to understand the .NET space in the last couple of years. We have .NET Framework, .NET Core, NET Standard, ASP.NET Core, ASP.NET, Xamarin, Mono and UWP. Some of it is cross-platform, some of it isn't, some of it is open source, some of it isn't. Obviously, the goal hasn't been to make it complicated, but a perfect storm of new frameworks, restructuring, politics and messaging changes has ended up with the somewhat confusing state we are in today. The confusion will go away over time as things stabilize, but until then, it might be a good idea to have a grasp of what the .NET world looks like today. So, in this session you will get all the information you need to understand the current state of .NET and the involved frameworks and technologies, as well as a proper walk through of what .NET Core really means from a technical point of view.
Chris Klug is a developer badass-as-a-service that either creates or solves problems depending on who you ask. He loves creating and building things. Whether it be a new application, a new kitchen or a new RC helicopter, you will see him building things all the time. Most of the time, that means writing code and solving problems for clients at a company called tretton37 in Stockholm though. Except for the many days he spends at conferences and usergroups, talking about doing things he is passionate about, and for the days he goes mountain biking, IPSC shooting, kiteboarding or RC helicopter flying. For the last 15-something years, he has been solving problems for customers, and loving it. But if he gets to choose, he'll go to the beach and kitesurf every day!
