The beauty in building .NET libraries

Are you currently building .NET open-source libraries? Are you looking to build one in the future? Or are you just generally interested in .NET Standard? Together we will cover the development process of bringing classic .NET PCLs or Shared Projects to the world of .NET Standard, automatically generating your deployable NuGet packages, reducing your cross-platform code from multiple projects to just one, and how we can automate all of this with GitHub together with Azure DevOps build and release pipelines! Speaker James Croft is a Technical lead in UX for Black Marble with over 8 years of experience building desktop and mobile applications with .NET. While his main developer focus is for building innovative and robust mobile app experiences for Windows, Android and iOS (Xamarin), he also has a passion for developing for augmented reality (AR), wearables and conversational AI.
