Building .NET Desktop Applications with .NET Core and Windows 10 – BRK3095



Last year, we announced that WPF and Windows Forms would be coming to GitHub and to .NET Core, and that most Windows 10 features would be available to these platforms. Since then, we’ve been working hard to

make this a reality. Join this session to learn all about the work we’ve done and the tools we’re building to prepare you for modern .NET Windows desktop development.

  1. both Apple and Google created new UI framework to make ui with Swift / Kotlin, without XAML or extra steps, this is the future, WPF isn't what .net core need, it needs a TRUE modern UI framework in C# only

  2. I've been trying to replicate the location app on this video but as soon as I put in the MapControl the xaml designer breaks and the app no longer compiles. Any thoughts?

  3. All these Build videos are mixed with the audio so low that we have to crank our volumes to hear them… so if sound happens from somewhere else on our devices … BAM! We are blasted out of our chairs.

  6. What a waste of time. If you want to build a real app learn C++ and build a native Win32 app outside of .NET World. Do us all a favor.

  7. So why isn't this titled 'Building .net desktop applications with UWP' – I thought that was the future of Windows. Now I'm confused. And yes I understand the relationship between UWP and .net core to an extent. But is UWP a dead end? UWP was meant to be the Windows head of the .net core body, now .net core has it's own head.

  8. It is a shame there is no support for win 7/8/8.1. Enterprises use them still and upgrading your app means support for older platforms too.
