I put them all below in the list, but just to name a few: The 3d tools called Babylon.JS 3.0 to create some amazing 3D apps, Postman, Cake and not to be forgotten the first release candidate of SQL Server 2017.

As usual we are always looking for presenters for our own events and Meetup’s so if you want to share something about hot technologies or just about something you implemented at work or in an App that could be interesting to our audience let us know so we can schedule you for one or our next SDN events or Dutch .NET Group Meetups.

This off course also goes for if you want to write a great article for us to publish in our SDN Magazines or at our SDN Website. The downside of publishing a magazine article is that there can be some time between writing the article and publishing the magazine. So, if it is time critical sometimes the best option is to publish it on the website to get more speedy attention to the article.

As you see, options enough to address your audience with top notch information. You can even, if you like, be our guest in our SDN Cast shows to discuss the projects you are working on or other topics you master. We will instruct you how to connect with us and what it is you need to join the show.

Hopefully we will see you at our weekly web cast, for the schedule go to for next week’s announcement to find out the day and time of our next broadcast or go to to watch old episodes and videos that we recorded at our events. Don’t forget to subscribe our YouTube channel or go directly to YouTube not to miss any of our shows!

SDNCast 39

This week was the week of the Windows Developer Day – Creators Update, an online event by Microsoft where they shared that he upcoming version of Windows also called the Creators Update is now feature complete. So also the SDK for this Windows version became available for download. And that was not all, there was more. Open sourcing of about twenty UWP controls developed by Telerik are now available for free.

Project Rome, to control applications on other devices, will now get an Android version soon. Bugs and Features are now in the open and published through a special site providing you with some insights on what is about to come, but also how bugs are progressing. Top UserVoice items will also arrive in the list so you can check for yourself to see how this is evolving.

We looked at migrating .json projects to .csproj. Fanie created a Proof of Concept to transform a .json configuration file into a .csproj equivalent and shows us how to get started in a demo.

Also we added some more interviews (Dutch) that we recorded at the by our friends from dotNed organized dotNedSaturday and also created a dedicated playlist for the dotNedSaturday videos. We are not completely finished yet with editing the interviews so there will be some more the upcoming week. The ones we posted so far can be watched here:
