.NET Conf, September 19-21. Call for Content is Open!

.NET Conf

.NET Conf is a free, 3 day virtual developer event co-organized by the .NET community and Microsoft. Over the course of the three days developers have a wide selection of live sessions that feature speakers from the community and .NET product teams. These are the experts in their field and it is a chance to learn, ask questions live, and get inspired for their next software project.

Call for content is now open! Learn more about how you can present to the .NET community.

Package of the week: Material Design In XAML Toolkit

The Material Design In XAML Toolkit theme and control library implements Google’s Material Design language in XAML, for all major WPF Framework controls. It also adds new controls to support controls specific to Material Design, such as multi-action buttons and cards.

Meetup of the week: Decomposing a monolith into Microservices with the Open Web Interface for .NET in New York, NY

How do you build a microservice? What technologies does the .NET realm offer for us? And what if you don’t want to deploy each service independently? In this talk, Dennis Doomen will show you some of the pros and cons of microservices and how you can leverage OWIN and .NET to move your monolith into a bright new future.

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 Azure and 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.

We pick the articles based on the following criteria: the posts must be about .NET, they must have been published this week, and they must be original contents. Publication in Week in .NET is not an endorsement from Microsoft or the authors of this post.

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.
