On today’s episode, Scott Hunter joins your host, Jeffrey Palermo, to discuss DevOps capabilities in Azure. Scott is the Director of Program Management for .NET at Microsoft. When Scott first joined Microsoft back in 2007, he was working on the ASP.NET team.


As the Director of Program Management of .NET, he and his team build .NET Core, .NET Framework, ASP.NET, Entity Framework, managed languages (C#/F#/VB), as well as the Web and .NET Tooling for Visual Studio.


Join Scott Hunter and Jeffrey as they take you through the differences between .NET Core and .NET Framework, when and why you should move to .NET Core 3.0 in the future, how .NET Standard bridges the gap between these two, where all the different architectures fit into the .NET ecosystem, and an update and overview on WebAssembly and Blazor. Scott and Jeffrey also give you a preview of their upcoming book, .NET DevOps for Azure, and their motivation behind it.
