2016 Retrospective


It has been a great year for .NET development! A Visual Studio Community is fully featured, .NET Core has arrived, and everything is open source. Regarding .NET Core, I am really enjoying working with it, and I simply cannot wait to get deeper into the Linux world.


I finally had to downgrade from three posts per month to only two posts per month. Unfortunately writing quality blog posts tasks time, and that was not something that I had in great abundance this year. Fortunately, I do think that the majority of posts this year were very high quality, especially when you look at the most recent ones. I have been working a lot with performance optimization, and have really been enjoying profiling and digging deep into code to see exactly what it is doing and why.


I am very happy to have launched Tact.NET this year! I have always really enjoyed creating frameworks, so rather than continue to write one off posts on this blog I decide to put all of my extracurricular worth together under one repository. I am really enjoying making Tact, and I have every intention of continuing to grow it.
