To read last week’s post, see The week in .NET – 7/26/2016.

On .NET

We had no show last week, and the guest for this week is still to be determined. Please check the On .NET channel on YouTube for updates.

Package of the week: AForge.NET

AForge.NET is an open source C# framework designed for developers and researchers in the fields of Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence – image processing, neural networks, genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic, machine learning, robotics, etc.

Motion detection using AForge.NET

Here’s the code for simple motion detection from a video feed:

.NET Core App of the week: Emitter.io

Emitter.io is a fast MQTT implementation that was built entirely on .NET Core, LibUV, and Docker. Naturally, a .NET client library is available.

Game of the Week: Overcooked

Chaotic couch co-op cooking game for one to four players.

In Overcooked, you work as a team of chefs preparing, cooking and serving a variety of tasty orders, making sure to serve them before your customers storm out angry, of course! You can play solo or with up to four of your friends in both co-op and challenge game modes. Overcooked features an array of bizarre kitchens that push your co-op and coordination skills, including being located on a pirate ship, moving trucks and the bowels of a fiery underworld!

You can participate too. Did you write a great blog post, or just read one? Do you want everyone to know about an amazing new contribution or a useful library? Did you make or play a great game built on .NET? We’d love to hear from you, and feature your contributions on future posts:
