Jan 8, 2024

Welcome to 2024. It’s going to be a great year in .NET, in Azure, and with DevOps. To kick things off, I wanted to review some of the big things you’ll want to look at in 2024. To do that, I’m airing a piece I recorded reviewing the highlights from .NET Conf looking at it from an architectural perspective. There are so many updates, but in this piece, I interpret the architectural thinking you’ll undergo as you implement the new bits. So, Happy New Year, and I’ll roll the piece.
