Happy birthday .NET with Eilon Lipton

In February we took a camera crew to the Microsoft Alumni Network’s big .NET 15th birthday bash and caught up with team members past and present. In this interview we chat with Eilon Lipton who’s been a developer at Microsoft since 2002 working mostly on the ASP.NET web stack. He chats about his masterpiece, the update panel (eeeek!), and some of the other great moments in .NET and his career.

On .NET: Alfonso García-Caro on Fable

Package of the week: Stanford CoreNLP

Stanford CoreNLP is a fascinating natural language processing library with a nice .NET version, Stanford.NLP.NET.

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 The Morning Brew.
