About .NET: the past, present and future

The .NET Framework was first introduced in 2002 (!!). The entire .NET ecosystem has come a long way since then.

The goal with .NET Core, with a first release in November 2014, was to take the learning from the .NET Framework over the previous 12 years and build a better product. With the release of .NET Core 3, Microsoft has closed much of the remaining capability gap with .NET Framework 4.8, which is quite a big feat. But the plans for the future are even bigger and bolder...!

This sessions gives you a brief history on .NET and elaborates on where it is right now, including demos of new features. Finally, we take a glimpse in the future to find out where it is heading.
