Microsoft Build 2020 – Highlights for .NET Developers
Over the course of the last three days, Microsoft Build 2020 released a flood of news and announcements.
For those of us who follow the .NET ecosystem, it can be difficult to wade through them all!
I've collected a list of announcements that I think are interesting as a .NET developer, and added short
summaries. The announcements are grouped into four categories: ASP.NET, .NET, Visual Studio and Windows.
In addition, each category is split into "released" (you can use it now!) or "preview / announced"
(you can test it out now, or soon).
I was invited to speak, and I covered the new features in C# 8.0. There are a ton!
Nullable Reference Types
Indices and Ranges
Default Interface Members
Static Local Functions
Null Coallescing Assignment
I have my presentation slides and code available on GitHub.
You can see my talk on the dotnetconf page, however the audio volume is too soft to hear. Oh well! You can get
similar content by watching Mads Torgersen's talk (Part 1) and Bill Wagner's talk (Part 2).
I recently gave a presentation on thinking in vim, which tries to bring people to that "Aha!" moment with Vim. The presentation should be useful to follow, even without the speaking portion. Hope this is useful!
