Your tools are changing! After a dozen years, upcoming versions of .NET and Visual Studio will have incremental changes, significant changes implemented incrementally, and a few big changes. This talk is an independent look at the changes in Microsoft tools, and some parallel changes in how Microsoft interacts with the ecosystem. You’ll appreciate how important the new C# and Visual Basic compilers are to future language design and new Visual Studio features. You’ll learn more about the newly designed versions of ASP.NET and Entity Framework, and how they will co-exist with new updates to the existing versions.
You’ll see the progression of the .NET Framework from a platform specific monolith to the new open source cross-platform version. And you’ll see new language features that will make your code cleaner and more reliable. This talk is designed to answer your questions about how changes in Microsoft tools affect your future development
I coach your .NET teams to improve in place, without disrupting current projects bio from Twitter
Kathleen wants to teach you to code better. She wants to teach you more about the tools you use every day and the tools, and maybe even languages, you aren’t yet using. Coding is her passion and debugging is her challenge - you’ll be happier if you do both better. Kathleen has written dozens of articles, spoken at conferences and user groups around the world, and pushes Microsoft to respond to your real-world needs as a long time MVP. She’s the Director of Engineering for Real (www.engagereal.com) and you can check out her courses on .NET and metaprogramming in the Pluralsight library.
