Happy 15th Birthday .NET! Happy 20th Anniversary Visual Studio!
This week marks the 15th anniversary since .NET debuted to the world. On February 13th, 2002, the first version of .NET was released as part of Visual Studio.NET. Read Beth Massi’s post, featuring a new interview of Anders Hejlsberg.
It’s also Visual Studio’s 20th anniversary. Julia Liuson tells the story.
This week, we’ll take a look back on the past 15 years of .NET with Beth Massi. We’ll stream live on Channel 9. We’ll take questions on Gitter’s dotnet/home channel and on Twitter. Please use the
#onnet tag. It’s OK to start sending us questions in advance if you can’t do it live during the shows.
Package of the week: Readline
Readline is one of those libraries that do one thing, and do it well. Its purpose is to implement a user prompt in your console applications, with standard keyboard shortcuts, command history, and customizable auto-complete. It is built to be a .NET implementation of GNU Readline.
