Happy Birthday .NET with Jan Kotas

In this quick interview, we talk to Jan Kotas, who was involved from the very beginning of .NET’s “Rotor” — a shared source, cross-platform version of .NET from the early days. Jan is now an architect on .NET Core and shares some of his stories building and open sourcing .NET.

Game of the Week: Skyworld

Skyworld is a turn based strategy game built for virtual reality. In Skyworld, you are the sole heir to the throne and must restore the empire to its former glory. To do this, you must recapture and unite shards of the world that have been broken off by a coven of evil witches. Manage your economy, upgrade your castles, and build an army that you’ll take into battle against your enemies!

Skyworld

Skyworld is being created by Vertigo Games using C# and Unity.

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, 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. Please add your posts, it takes only a second.

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.
