It’s about two years ago that I announced .NET Standard 2.0. Since then we’ve been working hard to increase the set of .NET Standard-based libraries for .NET. This includes many of the BCL components, such as the Windows Compatibility Pack, but also other popular libraries,
For .NET Core 3.0, we’re shipping a brand new namespace called System.Text.Json with support for a reader/writer, a document object model (DOM), and a serializer. In this blog post, I’m telling you why we built it, how it works, and how you can try it.
Typically, calendar eras represent long time periods. In the Gregorian calendar, for example, the current era spans (as of this year) 2,019 years. In the Japanese calendar, however, a new era begins with the reign of a new emperor. On April 30,
Starting back with the .NET Core 2.1 release, we were making iterative improvements to the floating-point parsing and formatting code in .NET Core. Now, in .NET Core 3.0 Preview 3, we are nearing completion of this work and would like to share more details about these changes and some of the differences you might see in your applications.

Developing applications that span multiple operating systems in .NET Core while working with Time Zone information can lead to unexpected results for developers not familiar with the differences in how operating systems manage Time Zones. In this post, we will explore those differences and the challenges they present.
Building C# 8.0
The next major version of C# is C# 8.0. It’s been in the works for quite some time, even as we built and shipped the minor releases C# 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3, and I’m quite excited about the new capabilities it will bring.
The .NET Framework 4 saw the introduction of the System.Threading.Tasks namespace, and with it the Task class. This type and the derived Task<TResult> have long since become a staple of .NET programming, key aspects of the asynchronous programming model introduced with C# 5 and its async / await keywords.
This week’s blog post is by Brian Lui, one of our summer interns on the .NET team, who’s been hard at work. Over to Brian:
Hello everyone! This summer I interned in the .NET team, working on ML.NET, an open-source machine learning platform which enables .NET developers to build and use machine learning models in their .NET applications.

At Build 2018 we announced that we are enabling Windows desktop applications (Windows Forms and Windows Presentation Framework (WPF)) with .NET Core 3.0. You will be able to run new and existing Windows desktop applications on .NET Core and enjoy all the benefits that .NET Core has to offer,
