To read last week’s post, see The week in .NET – 1/19/2016.
Last week, we chatted with Don Syme about the future of F#, and the community behind it. This week, our guests are Brian Flannery and Colin Sullivan from Apcera. We’re going to talk about NATS, a high performance messaging system with a great .NET client.
Package of the week: ASP.NET MVC Boilerplate
ASP.NET MVC Boilerplate is a great way to start a new modern and professional ASP.NET MVC application with all the bells and whistles that are expected today. A feature selection wizard lets you select which features you want on your web site from a huge list of options.
Tool of the week: SemanticMerge
User group of the week: New York ALT.NET Software Development Group
- We’re thrilled at the news that the American Astronomical Society will be taking a leading role in the future development of the WorldWide Telescope.
