iO Associates are delighted to bring you our first .Net virtual meetup of 2021! Our latest meetup featured Prasad Rao., Senior Partner Solutions Architect at Amazon Web Services, who presented a fantastic talk on ‘Port That .Net Framework Application to .Net5’.

.NET 5 represents a new era within the .NET ecosystem. New development on the .NET Framework has ended, and while it is still a viable application framework, the writing is definitely on the wall as there is no reason that any new development projects would use the v4.x .NET Framework. Instead, they would most likely be on .NET 5 or .NET Core 3.1. This could end up with projects within a company being scattered across various development frameworks as your team manages both current applications and new systems.

In this session we looked at how to port your .NET Framework application. We used the Porting Assistant for .NET (an open source AWS-created application) to evaluate the level of effort needed to convert the applications as well as work through several of the most common porting issues and concerns.
