.NET Conf is a FREE, 3 day virtual developer event organized by the .NET community and Microsoft. Next week .NET 6 will launch at .NET Conf 2021! We’re back in the studios this year and we have a lot of fun packed into the three days of learning. Come celebrate and learn about the new release. You won’t want to miss it.

Over the course of these three days, there is a variety of live sessions that feature speakers from the community and .NET teams. We have sessions streaming all day and night between day two and day three of the conference, so everyone can get involved regardless of your time zone. You can join in the fun by interacting with our hosts and asking questions live on Twitter to our speakers.

Best of all, you can take what you learn here and become a better .NET developer.

Join the conversation and ask questions using the hashtag: #dotNETConf on Twitter. You can also subscribe to notifications about .NET Conf and future events.

    Woohoo! I’ve been building a Blazor server-side application for two years and am getting so very close to making an announcement. I was hoping to get in on the .NET6 hype train but it will have to wait another month or so.

    BUT… I will say, the development cycle is SO awesome now. After a few hitches, my entire solution of 100+ projects is on .NET6+C#10+VS2022 and is AMAZING… I am really able to put things together very quickly now in Blazor/Razor views and, of course, all the new language syntax sugar is exactly that. YUMMMMMMMM!!! For instance, today I put in multi-factor authentication like it was a CRUD view, LOL. Turns out it’s built-in to ASP.NETCore and has been for some time now, but still… super sweet, yo.

    However, all that candy IMO is not the best part of the current .NET development space. The best part is when something goes wrong we’re able to report it to developercommunity where EACH AND EVERY TICKET is seen and handled. Now that doesn’t mean it’s a promise that it will get fixed — although a LOT of mine have! — but you get a bonafide feeling that everyone there really truly cares about their products and wants to see this win. BIG TIME.

    Anyways, had to share my respect and appreciation to everyone responsible for .NET/6. It is truly an amazing piece of real technology. I am honored to be able to use to not only build an application out of it but have an opportunity to establish a startup business upon it as well. I cannot thank you enough and can’t wait to show you what I’ve built courtesy of all your amazing efforts over there. <3

      Thank you for sharing! The team has been working very hard on the release. Hope to see you on the broadcast asking questions live next week 🙂

      I support! Agree.
      And I hope to improve the transmission protocol to byte type.
      And while this is the main drawback.

    Will it be possible to watch this at a later date? For example “Supercharge your Productivity with Roslyn and AI” with Mika Dumont. Would like to attend, but can not 🙁

    • Beth MassiMicrosoft employee 0

      Yes all the sessions will be available off the conference site on-demand a couple days afterwards.

    Its kindof funny that the giveaway post is blocked by Edges Tracking Prevention.

    .Net 6.0 is a big step forward. It’s a very capable framework. But, will final version of Visual Studio 2022 be native on MacOS M1 chip ?

    I was wondering if the code of the demonstrated podcast app by Scott @.NET Conf 2021 can be shared

    Kind regards,
