From the latest UI controls and native platform integrations on Android, iOS, macOS, and Windows to sharing more code with web technologies like Blazor, Angular, and ReactJS, learn how can achieve more with .NET MAUI, Visual Studio, and Microsoft Azure.

Cloud-native development with .NET 8 Join us to learn about .NET for cloud-native development. Discover updates in .NET 8.0 with new libraries for high-performance services on any cloud. Native AOT makes apps smaller and faster. .NET’s Open Telemetry support provides end-to-end visibility. See demos of .NET 8.0 and the future of cloud-native development, plus a special announcement. Don’t miss out!

Deep dive into .NET performance and native AOT Join us for a deep dive into .NET performance and native AOT compilation, as we explore the latest advancements and goals for .NET 8. We cover various tools and techniques involved in optimizing .NET apps, including reducing allocations, minimizing startup time, and exploring minimal container constraints. Learn how to build highly performant .NET apps that can run on any platform and meet the demands of modern cloud-native environments.

What’s new in C# 12 and beyond Take a tour of upcoming language features in C#. While still very much in the works, C# 12 is starting to take shape. We touch on some of the longer-term work that the language design team is focused on.

What’s new in .NET 8 for Web, frontends, backends, and futures? Join this session to explore new features in .NET 8 for web frontends, backends, and future development. Discover how .NET 8 enhances web app development with better performance, new APIs, and modern development support. Get guidance on leveraging these tools for scalable, efficient cloud apps. Suitable for both experienced and new .NET developers, this session offers valuable insights into the latest developments in .NET 8 for web development.

Kickstart your .NET modernization journey with the RWA pattern The reliable web app pattern helps migrate web apps to the cloud with high performance, security, reliability, and operations.
