September 27, 2019 David Dieruf

It's Spring One Platform time! What an amazing time to be a .NET developer. Every day we discover new possibilities in the open-source community. 

One of the more noteworthy possibilities: .NET microservices. If you're just getting into modern .NET or have reached ninja status, you're going to want to get to know the Steeltoe framework. At almost 4.7 million downloads the community agrees Steeltoe is the cloud-native .NET framework. Under the covers, Steeltoe project uses Spring Cloud to simplify patterns like config server, and service discovery. You don't have to know Java to use Java-based tech!

SpringOne Platform is the premier conference for getting hands-on with cloud-native patterns and practices. Both developers and cloud engineers find a wealth of knowledge, in just a few days at the conference - no matter the operating system. Looking over the sessions offered this year, it's obvious cloud-native .NET is a big focus. Let's have a look at the top .NET sessions offered. Register for the conference today!
