This week is a bumper edition as we have new preview releases from Microsoft for .NET Core 2.1 and Visual Studio 15.7.
Along with that, the bloggers have outdone themselves and written so many great blog posts this week, so I tried to highlight more of those in the FeaturedBlog Posts section. Due to this, I have decided to forego the Interesting Videos and Code sections for this week.
Also, remember to check out the More Good Stuff section at the bottom of the newsletter for many more great blogs posts I could not feature.
Are any of you living in Ho Chi Minh City? I’ll be there next week, so if you live there and want to grab a Saigon beer and talk .NET, please reply to this email. I like meeting readers everywhere I go! 😀
Hope you enjoy the content and have a wonderful weekend!
