C# .NET is the framework that is most often used to write software for the Microsoft Windows operating system. For many years, the C# .NET framework was closed source, but Microsoft’s recent push towards open source has led to the creation of .NET Core, a fork of C# .NET composed of a small subset of features from the original C# .NET stack.
This episode takes us through a history of .NET, with two program managers who have worked on .NET for many years–Immo Landwerth and Lee Coward. We also explored the present and future of .NET–discussing .NET Core and .NET usage on operating systems other than Microsoft Windows, which is another recent development.
