Happy birthday .NET with Robin Cole
In February we got together with many Microsoft alumni and current employees for a huge .NET Birthday bash. We spoke to Robin Cole, who joined Microsoft in 2005 working on many projects including Expression and Visual Studio. In this quick interview, she shares her thoughts on developers and designers and exciting future ahead.
Package of the week: TinyORM
TinyORM is a new micro-ORM for .NET that automates connection and transaction management, that is simple and easy to use correctly.
Game of the Week: 911 Operator
911 Operator is an indie simulation game. Ever wanted to see what it was like to be a 911 operator? Well, now you can! In 911 Operator, you’ll manage emergency lines by answering incoming calls and reacting appropriately. Give first aid instructions, dispatch emergency respondents or even choose to ignore the call which could very well be from a prankster. In 911 Operator, you can play in any city of the world by using Free Play mode to download real maps, which of course includes real addresses, streets and emergency infrastructure.
911 Operator was created by Jutsu Games using C# and Unity. It is available on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux.
