Hi everyone,
I am preparing a nice post on Azure Functions for very soon but, today I would like to share some history with you.

I found today a really amazing video on YouTube about the History of .NET. The video is actually a recording of a talk at the NDC { London } 2018, just 2 months ago, by Richard Campbell (from .NET Rocks)

On the talk Richard, who is a great storyteller, explains the story of how Microsoft was cornered and had to reinvent itself many times along the last 20–25 years, and how it led to the creation of the .NET Framework and all the technologies that entangles it.

I know I’ve been away from my blog for a long time and I’ll not try to make an excuse for this, but I want to make it clear that I intend to start writing again some time this quarter!

Today I just wanted to share with you two new videos from Channel 9 with some cool demos on the new features for .NET Core 2.1. In particular I would advise you to pay close attention to the improvements on the HttpClient and the Entity Framework support for CosmosDb. Enjoy!

One last thing to mention. Pay close attention to the benchmarks on the build process for .NET …
