Week 6 SDN Cast News on Windows Developer Day and more

SDNCast 39

This week was the week of the Windows Developer Day – Creators Update, an online event by Microsoft where they shared that he upcoming version of Windows also called the Creators Update is now feature complete. So also the SDK for this Windows version became available for download. And that was not all, there was more. Open sourcing of about twenty UWP controls developed by Telerik are now available for free.

Project Rome, to control applications on other devices, will now get an Android version soon. Bugs and Features are now in the open and published through a special site providing you with some insights on what is about to come, but also how bugs are progressing. Top UserVoice items will also arrive in the list so you can check for yourself to see how this is evolving.

We looked at migrating .json projects to .csproj. Fanie created a Proof of Concept to transform a .json configuration file into a .csproj equivalent and shows us how to get started in a demo.

Also we added some more interviews (Dutch) that we recorded at the by our friends from dotNed organized dotNedSaturday and also created a dedicated playlist for the dotNedSaturday videos. We are not completely finished yet with editing the interviews so there will be some more the upcoming week. The ones we posted so far can be watched here:

Week 2 SDN Cast News Items – .NET Standard 2.0

sdncast-35

Our second Dutch show this year, traditionally filled with bloopers – maybe we will create a gag-reel – this time we discussed .NET Standard some more. The huge expansion of the number of APIs supported by implementing the ‘compat shim’ or Type Forwarding. This allows you to reference the ‘old’ .NET Framework assemblies to make the .NET scope bigger than ever. The information was found directly from the .NET Standard GitHub repo documentation so you can access it yourself and read it in a dull moment!

And oh, while we were discussing the .NET Standard 2.0 Fanie transformed the FAQ right there on the spot into a BOT. We discussed the technology last week (week 1 of 2017). You now can ask your questions on the bot about .NET Standard 2.0 and your .NET Standard FAQ Bot will provide you with the right answers (provided that your question is clear enough to understand …)

Try the bot here:
