Video: The History of .NET

The post The History of .NET appeared first on Kill All Defects.


As someone who has been using .NET since the betas, I’ve been really impressed with .NET’s ability to grow, change, and stay relevant as technology changes. This isn’t an easy concept to explain to others, however, and so I thought I’d try to illustrate .NET’s history with an overview of changes from .NET Framework 1.0 to March of 2020.

In this video we’ll cover changes in:

  • .NET Framework
  • .NET Core
  • ASP.NET MVC
  • C#
  • F#
  • VB .NET
  • Visual Studio

This is not intended to be exhaustive, but it should help you share my appreciation for how those technologies have grown over time.

If you’d like to look at the timeline in more detail, I made it in GitKraken’s new Timelines feature and you can view my timeline online.

Let me know what you think!
