.NET Conf Focus on MAUI – That’s a wrap!

Jeffrey Fritz

.NET Conf: Focus on MAUI is a wrap! Our one-day .NET MAUI developer conference coincided with the release of Visual Studio 2022 version 17.3 an the launch of general availability of .NET MAUI tooling. The day was packed with sessions covering all topics of building beautiful multi-platform apps with .NET MAUI including designing UI, publishing apps, real-time apps, and so much more. In this post, I will cover some highlights from the event and give you all the information to get caught up on recordings and ongoing .NET MAUI activities that you can get involved with today.

Keynote highlights

Lead by David Ortinau and Maddy Montaquila, the .NET MAUI team and community brought 14 live sessions and another 10 pre-recorded sessions to this event. Our speakers taught about the various framework capabilities, language features, and device interactions possible with .NET MAUI. We also introduced the Visual Studio 17.3 release and announced our roadmap.
