On .NET

Last week, we spoke with Sidharth Gupta from Samsung about Tizen. Tizen is Samsung’s open-source OS that runs on TVs, watches, phones, and other devices. The development platform for Tizen is built on .NET Core and Xamarin Forms.

This week, we’ll talk about SonarLint with Tamás Vajk. We’ll take questions on Gitter, on the dotnet/home channel and on Twitter. Please use the #onnet tag. It’s OK to start sending us questions in advance if you can’t do it live during the show.

Happy birthday .NET!

Bertrand Le Roy started using .NET with the first public betas, then proceeded to write a CMS with it. That’s when he moved to the US and joined the ASP.NET team that was working on ASP.NET 2.0 at the time. He’s worked on ASP.NET Ajax (including UpdatePanel, yes), co-founded the Orchard CMS project, and is now working as a Program Manager on .NET Core. He sometimes speaks of himself in the third person.

Package of the week: JSON.NET 10

I’ve featured JSON.NET before, and it’s the #1 package on NuGet with more than 50 million downloads. Version 10 is out, with new features that make it a particularly exciting release. Specifically, the library now has full async support.

Download JSON.NET 10 on NuGet.org.

Blogger of the week: Gunnar Peipman

Gunnar Peipman has had at least one post a week featured here for quite a while, and this week is no exception, as you’ll find three of his posts in the ASP.NET, C#, and Azure sections. His posts are always very focused and immediately useful. Check out his blog!

Contribute to the week in .NET

As always, this weekly post couldn’t exist without community contributions, and I’d like to thank all those who sent links and tips. The F# section is provided by Phillip Carter, the gaming section by Stacey Haffner, and the Xamarin section by Dan Rigby, and the UWP section by Michael Crump.

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:

This week’s post (and future posts) also contains news I first read on The ASP.NET Community Standup, on Weekly Xamarin, on F# weekly, and on Chris Alcock’s The Morning Brew.
