With .NET 6 previews starting right around the corner, it is time to start getting excited for the new .NET Multi-platform App UI (MAUI) that was announced at BUILD 2020. This year of .NET has a lot of amazing things for client application developers.
.NET MAUI is the evolution of Xamarin.Forms, a cross-platform mobile first framework for Android, iOS, and UWP. Building upon 7 years of experience supporting customers from independent developers to some of the world’s largest companies, we are improving the core of the product, speeding up UI rendering, investing in consistent design systems, and extending from mobile to desktop.

It is always fun to play with new toys! This article from Julio Sampaio introduces you to Blazor – Web pages done in C#.
Blazor stands for Browser + Razor, which gives you an idea of what’s behind the new framework. Razor is the ASP.NET programming syntax that Microsoft uses to create its C# (or VB.NET) dynamic pages. Now, you can create web applications using only C# and run them in a web browser.

“Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) is currently not available for .NET Core. While other message queuing systems are generally preferred, many enterprise applications were based on MSMQ and this creates a problem for teams looking to migrate from .NET Framework to .NET Core or the upcoming .NET 5. But a recent pull request for Reference Source may change the situation.”

“.NET 5 has seen a wealth of performance improvements, and even though it’s not scheduled for final release until this fall and there’s very likely to be a lot more improvements that find their way in by then, I wanted to highlight a bunch of the improvements that are already available now.”

In the previous post of this series, Dave Brock discussed the init-only features of C# 9, which allowed us to make individual properties immutable. That works great on a case-by-case basis, but the real power in leveraging C# immutability is when we can do this for custom types. This is where records shine.
This is the second post in a five-post series on C# 9 features in-depth.
