.NET Rocks! is an Internet Audio Talk Show for Microsoft .NET Developers.

    Visual Studio Online with Nik Molnar

    Visual Studio Online with Nik Molnar

    What if your development environment was in the cloud? Carl and Richard talk to Nik Molnar about Visual Studio Online - literally a version of Visual Studio running on Azure. Nik talks about the time it takes to set up each development environment for each development project you have, and what you could do to make that less painful. The conversation also dives into the differences between personal configuration options and project options - you can have a dark theme if you want! And even more interestingly - you can do remote development on your own dev machine at work while traveling through VS Online. Lots of cool possibilities!

    XAML Tooling with Dmitry Lyalin

    XAML Tooling with Dmitry Lyalin

    How do you write XAML? Carl and Richard chat with Dmitry Lyalin about Microsoft's on-going efforts to make coding in XAML faster, easier and more reliable. Dmitry starts out talking about how there are different dialects of XAML, including WPF, UWP, Xamarin Forms and more - although there are concerted efforts to keep them more in sync. And that helps with tooling also! Dmitry dives into Blend, XAML Designer and the power of coding XAML directly with IntelliCode, hot-reload and more!

    Q# and Quantum Computing with Johnny Hooyberghs

    Q# and Quantum Computing with Johnny Hooyberghs

    Are we actually making progress on quantum computing? While at .NET Developer Days in Warsaw, Carl and Richard talked to Johnny Hooyberghs about quantum computing and Microsoft's Q# language. The discussion begins with some definitions around quantum computing including qubits, superposition, and entanglement. Google's announcement on quantum supremacy is debated, as is the idea that quantum computers could ever be general-purpose computing devices. Back in the 1950s, we didn't think computers would be homes, so who knows what comes next!

    Debugging Memory Leaks in .NET with Adam Furmanek

    Memory Leaks in .NET? How is that possible? While at .NET Developer Days in Warsaw, Carl and Richard talked to Adam Furmanek about modern memory leaks - the things we can do in .NET that cause more memory to be consumed over time. Adam talks through various aspects of .NET that have a risk of causing memory leaks, how to detect them and then the hard part - how to fix them.

    Going Live on Containers with Michele Leroux Bustamante

    Going Live on Containers with Michele Leroux Bustamante

    Containers sound like a good idea - but can you get your application live on them? Carl and Richard talk to Michele Bustamante about her on-going work migrating existing applications to microservices on containers, as well as greenfield development. Michele discusses the balance of complexity and flexibility that containers bring, and the challenges of getting an organization comfortable operating an entirely new architecture of applications. But the payoff is big - scalable, reliable and cost-effective software!

    Python for .NET Developers with Michael Kennedy

    Python for .NET Developers with Michael Kennedy

    Do you Python? Carl and Richard chat with Michael Kennedy about the current state of Python and how .NET developers can learn it! Michael talks about the many flavors of Python out there today and the tremendous number of libraries available. The focus of Python on machine learning, scientific computation and more makes it great for all sorts of applications outside of regular dev. But if you wanna make a web site - it kicks butt there too! Check out Michael's course on Python for .NET Developers if you want to get started!

Great resource and very entertaining!

Carl and Richard have a combined breadth of experience that gives them an excellent base from which to speak to people from all over the .NET community, and the software development community at large. Their experience working together hosting DNR, and speaking at conferences helps the show to flow almost effortlessly as the two guide the audience through new topics each show.
