.NET Core at the Thrive Conference in Slovenia

This time the Thrive Conference in Slovenia celebrates 10 years! This time the conference is located in Postojna, at a hotel located at the Postojna cave. The 10 years and the cave shouldn’t be the only reason for you to attend this event. I’ll run a full-day pre-conference workshop for a move to .NET Core, and two sessions on C# 8 with .NET Core 3, and Blazor! Read more details and a discount code for attendance in this blog article!

Move to .NET Core

.NET Framework 4.8 will be the last major version of the .NET Framework – only fixes are planned. Using .NET Core 3.0 it’s not only possible to create Web applications, but also Windows applications using WPF and Windows Forms. The next major version of .NET will be .NET 5 in 2020. This is just a new name for .NET Core to make the move from .NET Framework even more clear. You should already invest moving to the new framework – .NET Core.
This one-day workshop gives you an introduction – what’s different with .NET Core. You’ll see the most important aspects on creating .NET Core applications using the tools, make use of dependency injection, logging, and configuration, and create ASP.NET Core Web applications as well as WPF Windows applications.

This one-day workshop is designed for attendees working with an older version of .NET to move to .NET Core. In case you are already using .NET Core, I’m sure you also have a lot to take away from this one day as I’m covering new features from .NET Core 3.

Blazor – an Introduction to create .NET Code for the Browser

Blazor is no longer an experimental project from Microsoft. Blazor allows to write C# and .NET Code to add client-side functionality with Web applications. The first part of Blazor that’s released with .NET Core 3.0 offers server-side Blazor functionality. Client-side Blazor using WebAssembly has a release planned with .NET Core 5 in 2020. In this session you get an introduction to Blazor, learn how you can use ASP.NET Core Razor syntax to create Blazor components. You’ll see server-side Blazor in action, and what’s needed to change it to the upcoming client-side Blazor, and what’s going on behind the scenes.

C# 8 and .NET Core 3 – what’s new?

C# 8 and .NET Core 3.0 will be released in September. What’s new? What’s coming? Can you already use some of the new functionality? What’s important where you should pay attention to? Many of the new features of .NET Core are based on language enhancements. In this session you’ll get an overview what’s new with C# 8, see enhancements with .NET Core, get an overview of the most important features of ASP.NET Core, and you’ll see how .NET Core can be used to create WPF applications.
