ASP.NET vNext with Mark Rendle

The Talk

At TechEd last year, various Scotts and a David announced ASP.NET vNext, the biggest thing to happen to the Microsoft web developers story since ASP.NET 1.0.

It's a moving target as it's still in development but I can guarantee it will cover:

  • The Core CLR, the K Runtime, and the project.json file
  • How Roslyn fits into the story
  • The merging of MVC and Web API into a single, streamlined, uber-framework
  • The new features in MVC 6
  • An update on Simple.Data 2.0


Look, it's all awesome. Just come and see.


The Speaker

Mark Rendle has been making software professionally for over 25 years, and still enjoys it. He consults on cloud computing and application development, and is the founder of Zudio, a browser-based application for managing data in Microsoft Azure. He is currently working on Simple.Data 2.0, and playing with ASP.NET 5 and .NET Core, Aurelia and EcmaScript 6, as well as Docker and other Linux-y things. He would very much like it if somebody sent him a HoloLens.
