Connect() Wrap Up


Did you Connect()?  With 2014 winding down, Microsoft announced a boatload of new initiatives and features for developers at their Connect() event in New York.  Are you ready to start developing with Visual Studio 2015?  There’s not one, but two ASP.NET frameworks being released with the announcement of ASP.NET 4.6 and ASP.NET 5.  What do those mean for you and your organization?  Microsoft published an Android emulator?  How does that work?  Let’s not forget the biggest announcement of them all: Open Source .NET and the cross-platform .NET compilers for Mac and Linux.  In this demo packed session, join Jeff Fritz as he breaks down all of the goodies that were announced, how they’ll impact you, what you can do with these announcements NOW, and what you can expect from Microsoft in the months ahead.
