While in Sydney for the NDC conference, Richard Campbell stopped by the Sydney .NET User Group to present “The History of .NET”. Informative and entertaining, this presentation is a much-watch for anyone with an interest in .NET programming.
.NET has been around since 2002 for the initial release. When it came around it was really revolutionary and we’ve been loving .NET ever since. SSW has built thousands of apps over the last 15 years on .NET and the language and tooling have improved with each release. This new version, called .NET Core, is a generational change. It is a major rewrite that solves a number of issues.
