dotnetConf is back, this Wednesday

dotnetConf is a free, 2 day virtual event co-organized by the .NET community and Microsoft, and it’s this Wednesday! As you can guess by its name, it’s dedicated to your favorite development platform, .NET. Grab a comfortable chair, a pot of your favorite hot (or cold) beverage and a mind to fill with all the latest .NET product and community news. The dotnetConf team has been planning the event for a few months now. We’ve got a great show ready for you.
