.NETConf an online event that happened yesterday that focused only on Xamarin, the mobile development framework that allows .net developers to build Android and iOS mobile applications delivering native performance.
I wanted to highlight some of the good numbers that indicate huge growth in the adoption of .net and Microsoft technologies and development stack :
- One million new .net developers in 2019 using Visual Studio, 40% are students.
- The open-source .net ecosystem has 87%, non-Microsoft contributors. They don’t work for Microsoft, but still, Microsoft accepted their more than 11,000 push requests.
- Visual Studio 2019 is now easier than ever to use and 2x faster to install with only 6GB compare to the 23GB of the 2017 version.
The event was 9 hours of community members, MPVs, and Product team; it is designed for new developers as well as experts, it covers the basics, UI, testing, performance, marketing and more. Feel free to watch the full event:
