The week in .NET – 3/15/2016
To read last week’s post, see The week in .NET – 3/8/2016.
Last week, we had Nick Craver on the show to talk about StackOverflow. It was lots of fun, and I highly recommend watching if you’re interested in getting an inside look at how StackOverflow is being maintained and kept a high-performance site. Exceptionally this week, we won’t have a show.

Game of the week: Overload
Overload is a 6-degrees-of-freedom shooter by the original creators of Descent.

While Overload is still in the early development, a playable teaser is available on Steam and their website.
And this is it for this week!
