iO Associates are excited to bring to you our next .Net Virtual Meetup! We were joined by Scott Hunter, Director of Programme Management at Microsoft, who delivered a talk on .NET 5 and .NET 6. What a turnout it was!

This talk covered the state of .NET and gave us an overview of all the new capabilities in .NET 5, including new features for building smaller, faster Web API’s and gRPC for Microservices, Windows desktop enhancements including ClickOnce, and the new features in Blazor for SPA’s. We also talked about the journey to One .NET and show a preview of Project Tye for building and publishing Microservices. We ended with a look to the future in .NET 6.
