Since we shipped .NET Standard 2.0 about a year ago, we’ve shipped two updates to .NET Core 2.1 and are about to release .NET Core 2.2.

A few of us just went to a smaller .NET conference in Portland, called .NET Fringe. For me, it was the third time I attended .NET Fringe. I’ve realized that this conference has gained a special place in my heart, so thought it would be worthwhile writing up why that is.

We’ve travelled many new roads in the process of releasing .NET Core 1.0, ASP.NET Core 1.0 and Entity Framework Core 1.0. Developing the projects in the open and delivering to Mac and Linux have been exciting experiences and the feedback we continue to receive shows that the excitement is shared by many.
