The first webinar of the “.NET 6.0/7.0 in practical use” series is set to take place next week on April 19th. It aims to provide developers with all the necessary information to migrate their developments to modern .NET. The series consists of six webinars with a total duration of over 24 hours and is also helpful for those looking to start a new development based on .NET 6.0 or 7.0.
Modern .NET refers to Microsoft’s development platform, which will be launched in autumn 2021 with .NET 6.0. It can be used to create up-to-date desktop applications with Windows Forms and WPF, ASP.NET-based web applications, mobile apps based on Universal Windows Platform and .NET MAUI or Unity games. The webinar is based on the current .NET 7.0 release, which although not a Long-Term Support (LTS) release, has several innovations and improvements to code quality that may justify the migration to .NET 7. The next LTS release, .NET 8.0, is scheduled for November 2023.
During the webinar series, developers will learn how to practically use modern .NET through a continuous, multi-layered case study. Each webinar consists of four blocks of 45 minutes each, starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 1 p.m. It includes explanations and demonstrations, with live coding by experts occasionally featured. The series was designed by .NET doctor Holger Schwichtenberg and his team of experts from www.IT-Visions.de.
Participation in one of the webinar dates costs 169 euros (inclusive of VAT). However, booking all six appointments at once yields significant savings through an annual subscription to the heise Academy for 495 euros compared to individual sales.
