The week in .NET: .NET Core 1.0.1 – On .NET with Peachpie – Avalonia – Folk Tale
To read last week’s post, see The week in .NET – 9/7/2016.
.NET Core 1.0.1 shipped!
We shipped .NET Core 1.0.1 yesterday. Check out the announcement!
Last week, we spoke with Benjamin Fistein and Jakub Míšek about Peachpie, a PHP compiler for .NET. We’ve had Ben and Jakub on the show before, and they came back to show us some of the new features they’ve built: .NET Core compatibility, debugging in VS Code, Docker deployment, and NuGet package building and consumption.
This week, we’ll speak about Steeltoe, a .NET toolkit for common microservice patterns. The show begins at 10AM Pacific Time on Channel 9. We’ll take questions on Gitter, on the dotnet/home channel. Please use the
#onnet tag. It’s OK to start sending us questions in advance if you can’t do it live during the show.
Project of the week: Avalonia
Avalonia is a multi-platform UI toolkit, somewhat like WPF. It supports XAML and a flexible styling system, and runs on Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android.
Game of the Week: Folk Tale
Folk Tale blends the mechanics of a real-time strategy with role playing elements. Players balance building a thriving village from nothing whilst exploring the vast world, making new relationships and discovering new loot. Folk Tale features random events and a dynamic story, letting you run your village the way you want while never knowing exactly how the story will unfold. Both campaign and sandbox modes can be enjoyed in addition to an in-game editor which the community can use to make their own worlds.
