In my video this week I talk about the history of .NET and why I think now is a great time to be a .NET developer. I was at a conference in Las Vegas back in the fall of 2000 and I saw Scott Guthrie, wearing his now famous red polo shirt, talking about this new technology called ASP+.
It would soon be renamed to ASP.NET. It was fantastic and I’ve been using it every since that announcement, well before it was officially released in 2002.
If .NET Core 2.0 has as much life as the original, then it will be around for at least another 15 years and that is a good thing. The performance of .NET Core 2.0 is fantastic.
I hope you enjoy my story as I talk about why I started using .NET all those years ago…
