    News I am looking out for
    Visual Studio 2024?
    MAUI General Availability (Second Attempt)?
    MAUI web/linux?
    Mono gets replaced by .Net?
    WinUI 3.0 shouldn’t be used, but instead always use MAUI? or WinUI 3.1?
    winget/package manager integrated part of windows?

    • Daniel Smith 3

      Hopefully some of these will be addressed in the .NET 9 timeframe.

      For Visual Studio 2024/25 I’d really like to see Microsoft dog food their own latest tech and upgrade the IDE from .NET Framework to .NET 8/9. Failing that, I’d settle for project/solution rename (that renames the folders).

      • Nicholas Halka 2

        VS in .net 8/9 would be my #1 request.

    • Andrew Witte 1

      Avalonia UI is the only one that is done correctly with its rendering back-end. (its only flaw has been poor IDE integration which is being addressed).
      WinUI 3.x, MAUI, etc have almost zero value. I would sooner use Unity3D for the rendering back-end with a custom XAML UI system than use what MS is trying to push here. WinUI only makes sense on Windows like Cocoa only makes sense on macOS.

      .NET AOT for more platforms will be nice. Would love to see WASM supported here & Unity3D replacing Mono / IL2CPP with it for most platforms.
      Also MS needs proper cross-platform IDE support for C#. VS-Code not using MSBuild & poor .sln support is utter nonsense for cross-platform dev situations. Rider solves this but is expensive for Linux dev when I only use it to rapidly debug Unity3D Linux issues. (VS-Code just doesn’t work with Unity3D on Linux well)

      Not to get lost in the weeds but Windows security, audio libraries, etc are so bad in todays world it shocks me its still used as a desktop OS anymore. macOS is 20 years ahead of Windows at this point. MS needs to rip the band-aid off & start using a UNIX kernel, make a new one or something like Fuchsia OS is going to negate Windows entirely long run I feel.

    I’ll be looking forward to seeing what Daniel, Steve and the rest of the ASP.NET team have to show off for Blazor. 💖

    I’m hoping the EF team also does a session.

  • Stefan Hinterhegger 5

    I wonder if they can stabilize .NET MAUI until then. This thing is a nightmare to use – every release introduces new regressions 🤮

  • Georgi Hadzhigeorgiev 0

    Blazor and easy to customize Identity UI

  • Daniel Bronson 0

    I’m interested in anything Blazor!

    sadly the call to “engage” because .net conf isn’t just about learning, seems once again rather one sided

    thats not how you “engage” with the community…

  • Thys Brits 1

    I would love to see more of what is put into VS Code to also be available in Visual Studio, as a paid product. Lots of functionality is available in VS Code that is not available in VS Pro/Enterprise. What is the road forward for the two product lines?

  • Hervé Peuziat 1

    Does Microsoft plan to create a platform like Kaggle or Google Colab so that we can use (and learn) ML.Net or TensorFlow.net, with GPUs for free?

    • karthik p 0

      Great idea, i would also like to learn and use ml.net in my projects in the more engaging way, in future planning explore if there is any way to use ml.net to use in some of power shell scripts to predict/infer exception to categorize issues (btw i am using scripts as scheduler jobs for handling Sharepoint online files ).

  • Ehsan Babaei 1

    What innovations are currently underway in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning within the .NET platform?

  • Felipe silveira 3

    MS need to hire more devs to help with MAUI.
    There’s something like 8 devs working and creating PRs to fix this nitghmare of bugs.
    The bots close automatically issues provided without an sample repro. This not engage the community
