Notes from the ASP.NET Community Standup –March 21, 2017

 

This is the next in a series of blog posts that will cover the topics discussed in the ASP.NET Community Standup. The community standup is a short video-based discussion with some of the leaders of the ASP.NET development teams covering the accomplishments of the team on the new ASP.NET Core framework over the previous week. Join Scott HanselmanDamian EdwardsJon Galloway and an occasional guest or two discuss new features and ask for feedback on important decisions being made by the ASP.NET development teams.

Each week the standup is hosted live on Google Hangouts and the team publishes the recorded video of their discussion to YouTube for later reference. The guys answer your questions LIVE and unfiltered. This is your chance to ask about the why and what of ASP.NET! Join them each Tuesday on live.asp.net where the meeting’s schedule is posted and hosted.

Conversations and Accomplishments

Recently, a proposal was made to build a basic object mapper; this started an engaging conversation about the proposal and AutoMapper. During the stand up, Damian answered some questions about this issue – Basic object mapper for simple model-viewmodel-model property mapping, and shared that he has been talking to Jimmy Bogard to discuss future plans.

Damian shared, some to the ASP.NET Core 2.0  features that the team has been working on. These include:

SignalR: The team continues to work on porting SignalR to ASP.NET Core, and plans to ship it by the end of the year. To learn more about some of the design issues that team has encountered during this process, please watch David and Damian’s talk from NDC London 2017.

Continued improvements to Tag Helpers:  For example, the team is adding head and body tag helper to the framework.
Kestrel: The team continues to work hard on performance.

Happy Coding!
