Microsoft open sourced .NET Core in Nov 2014 and acquired Xamarin in Feb 2016., which rebuilt the .NET/Mono/Xamarin landscape significantly. Ever since .NET platform's debut in June 2000, this ecosystem has been evolving rapidly and empowering more categories of applications than its original ambition. This session offers an overview that covers the history of .NET Framework and its Mono/Xamarin siblings, stories and people, and how the future might look like. Outsider viewpoints/comments and third party products are also covered to make the image complete.
